The candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP in the just concluded election has led hundreds of supporters of the party to stage a protest at the headquarters of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Abuja.
This is part of the party’s stance that the just-concluded Presidential and National Assembly elections were not transparent.
Atiku Abubakar, 76 has run for the office of the president, six times.
He got 6,984,520 votes, while Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP), who, in less than a year, galvanised young voters in a manner some have described as unprecedented finished the race with 6,101,533. Both of them came second and third positions after the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Bola Tinubu who polled 8,794,726 and was declared President-Elect 4am Wednesday by INEC.

A day after the results were released, he slammed INEC over the conduct of the elections, saying the umpire’s inability to upload results on IReV is a “rape of democracy”.
He vowed to challenge the outcome of the election and believes the judiciary will do justice to the matter.
