BIG STORY: Investigations reveal Tinubu came 3rd, Peter Obi won presidential election



The 2023 presidential elections may have come and gone but the scars are indelible and will remain with Nigerians for the rest of their lives, that is if the judiciary, whom many have vested their ‘last hope’, decides against having a free & fair trial at the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal (PEPT).

There has been serious unrest in Nigeria since INEC chairman, Prof Mahmood Yakubu announced the candidate of the APC, Ahmed Bola Tinubu as the winner of the presidential election on February 28th 2023, a decision that has received wide criticism within Nigeria and abroad.

INEC Chairman, Prof Yakubu conducted the worst election in the history of Nigeria, according to citizens

Nigerians have strongly opined that the process of results collection & collation was extremely flawed as there wasn’t any correlation with the announced results and what was obtained at the polls.

There were many cases of results mutilation, manipulation, suppression of casted votes, suppression of voters to prevent them from voting, and violence, and all these have appeared to favour only one player; APC, the ruling party.

After a careful evaluation of the election and an independent review of the INEC iREV portal, Reportera News investigations has revealed that the INEC declared winner, Ahmed Bola Tinubu did not win the presidential elections.

As a matter of fact, he came a distant third, losing to LP’s candidate, Peter Obi who won the election by a considerably wide margin.

Labour Party’s Peter Obi won the presidential elections, as revealed by investigations.

The PDP candidate, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar surprisingly came second, with not much figures separating his party, PDP and APC.

The candidate of NNPP, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso who was considered a ‘spoiler’ due to the perceived propensity of his party slashing either of APC or PDP’s votes in the Northern part of the country, especially the North-West where he is from and hugely popular, retained his position in 4th place after our review.

The 2023 presidential election was the most anticipated election in the nation’s history, there was a lot of media hype which got many Nigerian youths very interested in politics, these were people who had hitherto the 2023 elections not cared about politics.

INEC’s data showed a record voter card registration and collection, so it was only logical that the election churns out record voter numbers.

However, INEC and APC unbeknownst to Nigerians, had hatched a plan which would give the ruling party victory even before a vote was cast at the first ballot; manufacture artificial results for APC across their supposed strongholds.

What they didn’t envisage was that the turnout of people against them would outnumber the figures they had manufactured, therefore, they proceeded to slash the votes of the leading candidate, Peter Obi, and in many cases feasting on them by transferring LP votes to APC.

In a BBC report, it was concluded that there was a clear case of voter suppression because the variables at play prior the elections could not have logically or scientifically arrived at the eventual outcome which produced Tinubu as the ‘winner’.

It was clear that the numbers did not simply add up. As a matter of fact, the election according the the INEC released results, recorded the lowest ever voter turnout in Nigeria’s election despite having a record number of eligible voters.

It is therefore not only illogical but completely careless and a spit on the faces of Nigerians for INEC to tell them that APC won the nation’s most important, publicized, and anticipated election in it’s history, it was simply preposterous and miscarriage of the trust bestowed on them to decide Nigeria’s future by conducting a free & fair poll.

Tinubu did not win the presidential elections.

8 years APC antecedents, scorecard

Nigeria has been steered by APC in the last 8 years and have received the worst ever scorecard for any administration, the country is in disarray with record indebtedness, unemployment rate, poverty, illiteracy, terrorism, kidnapping & banditry, devalued currency & low purchasing power, high cost of living and hunger.

In fact, the UN reported in late 2022 that Nigeria has at least 90 million persons living in multi-dimensional poverty, that is the lowest point any human can be, abject penury. This means that about half the country can’t afford to feed, cloth or shelter themselves.

It is therefore illogical for the same people suffering due to the government’s ineptitude to vote the same get government into power again. This is the second episode in a series of investigative report on the 2023 presidential election by Reportera News.

The suspension stems from the recent political turmoil that engulfed the nation, with the African Union pointing to the coup orchestrated by Gen Abdourahamane Tchiani on Wednesday, July 26. As part of a series of sanctions imposed on the francophone West African country, the Republic of Niger faced the repercussions of its internal upheaval.

The African Union’s stance was uncompromising, as it made it clear that Western nations seeking to meddle in African affairs should refrain from interfering. This firm message was directed from the heart of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, where the AU’s call for autonomy echoed loudly.

The events leading up to Niger’s suspension unfolded against a backdrop of political uncertainty and unrest. The coup in Niger, orchestrated by Gen Abdourahamane Tchiani, prompted the Afican Union to take action. Their decision to suspend Niger was not taken lightly and was ratified during the Peace and Security Council meeting in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia on August 22.

The aftermath of the military takeover in left President Mohamed Bazoum in captivity, held under the close watch of the juntas in Niger. Despite international pressure, the release of the president and his family remains elusive. This tense situation compelled the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) to intervene, imposing sanctions on Niger and establishing a deadline for the initiation of military intervention by the sub-regional body’s standby forces.

The suspension of the Republic of Niger from the African Union serves as a stark reminder of the continent’s commitment to upholding stability and safeguarding democratic governance. The swift response underscores the African Union’s dedication to maintaining order and security within its member states, sending a resounding message to the global community about the importance of respecting Africa’s sovereignty.

Peter Obi: “I Campaigned For Presidency Because I Can Say It Any Day, I Will Solve The Problem Of Nigeria”



In a recent tweet that has caught the attention of many, @MissPearls shares an inspiring declaration made by former Anambra state governor and Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi. According to @MissPearls, Peter Obi proclaimed, “I campaigned for Presidency because I can say it any day, I Will SOLVE THE PROBLEM OF NIGERIA.

Peter Obi: I Campaigned For Presidency Because I Can Say It Any Day, I Will Solve The Problem Of Nigeria.

Peter Obi’s bid for the presidency in the recent elections stirred considerable excitement and garnered support from diverse quarters, particularly the youth demographic. The former governor is known for his progressive ideas and pragmatic approach to governance, which resonated with many Nigerians who sought change and effective solutions to the country’s myriad challenges.

Despite his extensive support and well-articulated vision, Peter Obi’s presidential ambitions faced formidable opponents in the election. The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) released results that placed him behind the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, who emerged as the winner, and Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), who came second. However, these results were met with skepticism due to apparent electoral irregularities that marred the integrity of the process.

In response to the controversial election outcome, both Peter Obi and Atiku Abubakar filed legal challenges against the INEC’s declaration. This move underscores their commitment to upholding the democratic process and ensuring that the voice of the electorate is accurately reflected. As the election Tribunal Judges prepare to deliver their verdict, Nigeria watches with bated breath, eager to witness justice being served.

Meanwhile, the administration of Mr. Bola Ahmed Tinubu has taken significant policy actions since assuming office. The removal of fuel subsidies and the decision to float the Naira have triggered mixed reactions across the nation. While these measures may be intended to foster economic stability and growth, the immediate consequences have been felt by everyday Nigerians. The cost of living has surged, and the socio-economic effects on the rich and the poor have become more pronounced.

As the Nigerian population navigates these shifts, the aftermath of the election and the ensuing governance strategies offer a critical juncture for evaluating the nation’s trajectory. The voices of discontent, expressed by citizens facing the brunt of these policies, highlight the necessity for leaders to prioritize the well-being of the populace while pursuing economic advancements. It is essential for the government to strike a balance between fiscal prudence and safeguarding the interests of the vulnerable segments of society.

The policy changes implemented by Bola Tinubu have shed light on the delicate balance between progress and the welfare of the people. As the nation waits for the tribunal’s judgment and the dust settles on the recent election, Nigeria stands at a crossroads, with the potential to reshape its future trajectory and address the systemic challenges that have held it back for far too long.

The Commissioner of Police cited “confirmatory intelligence products” as the basis for this decision, leaving a contentious atmosphere surrounding the freedom of assembly and the right to peaceful protest.

In a video circulated online, the enthusiastic protesters chanted slogans that echoed their deep-seated concerns. Chants of “No to corruption,” “No to injustice,” and “No to manipulation” reverberated through the crowd, embodying the youth’s unwavering commitment to fair and accountable governance.

Addressing the gathering, Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf praised the peaceful conduct of the protesters and assured them that their concerns would be relayed to President Bola Tinubu. This gesture recognizes the role of the youth in shaping political discourse and underscores the importance of their voices in the pursuit of a just society.

In conclusion, the youths in Kano have seized the moment to voice their concerns and demands for an unbiased electoral process. Their defiance of the police ban serves as a reminder that public sentiment cannot be easily suppressed.
