Despite the nation’s hope for a peaceful and fair election, the process was tainted with accusations of rigging, voter suppression, intimidation, bribery, and disenfranchisement in crucial regions, notably the South Eastern States and the South South, where Peter Obi was expected to rally significant support. Instead, it was Bola Tinubu who was declared the winner, leaving many Nigerians in disbelief at the outcome.
