The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has described the outcome of the just concluded Presidential Election as mere allocation of figures therefore, demanded an immediate withdrawal of Certificate of Return issued to the Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr Bola Tinubu.

PDP’s demand was contained in a statement signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Hon. Debo Ologunagba on Thursday, February 2, 2023.

The party’s National Working Committee (NWC) rejected the declaration and return of the Presidential Candidate of the APC Bola Tinubu as President.

The PDP demands that INEC immediately withdraws the Certificate of Return issued to the Presidential candidate of APC and cancel the Presidential Election declaration in line with its power under Section 65 of the Electoral Act 2022.

The party insists that INEC in declaring the APC Presidential candidate as winner, acted contrary to the provisions of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 (as amended), the Electoral Act 2022 and the INEC Guidelines and Regulation for the conduct of the 2023 Presidential election.

PDP in the statement, held that its “Presidential Candidate Atiku clearly won the February 25, 2023 Presidential election having evidently scored the majority votes cast by Nigerians at the Polling Units.

“Sadly, the election was married by deliberate malpractices including the non-use of the Bimodal Voters Accreditation System (BVAS) and INEC’s refusal/failure to transmit directly the results from Polling Units to its Server/Website in flagrant violation of Section 60(4)(b) of the Electoral Act 2022”.

It said, “the violation of the Electoral Act by INEC as attested to by political parties, Voters, Nigerians of all walks of life as well as local and International Observers, paved the way for the alteration, falsification, switching of results and allocation of figures in favour of the APC”.

PDP said, “by refusing therefore, to transmit directly the results from the Polling Units, INEC violated the Electoral Act and its Rules and Regulation, compromised the process and married the integrity and credibility of the election results.

“Consequently, our party and its Presidential Candidate have commenced action for legal redress to reclaim our victory in the 2023 presidential election”, the party said.
