PDP, LP, ADP Demand 2023 Poll Cancellation Over Irregularities
Barely 24 hours after Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Labour Party (LP) agents walked out from the Presidential collation centre, the two political parties and African Democratic Congress (ADC) have demanded that the 2023 general election be cancelled over irregularities that have marred the exercise across the country.
The parties stated that the general election conducted by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) was completely marred by irregularities that cannot be amended to conform with the wish of the people that cast their votes during the electoral exercise.
Aside from the cancellation, they also demanded that Chairman of the electoral umpire , Prof. Mahmud Yakubu, should resign immediately to allow another credible and transparent individual to conduct a fresh general election exercise across the country.
They made the demands on Tuesday during a joint press briefing held in the Federal Capital Territory Abuja, to state their grievances against the exercise conducted by INEC on February 25.
