EU Mission has reported that the 2023 Presidential Election Poll was massively rigged in favor of Bola Ahmed Tinubu. However, the Labour Party has described the report of the European Union Election Observation Mission on the 2023 general election in Nigeria as confirmation of connivance between the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the All Progressives Congress-led government.
The party disclosed this in a press statement issued by its National Publicity Secretary, Obiora Ifoh, on Sunday night in reaction to the Federal Government’s dismissal of the EU Mission report. The statement reads; “The leadership of the Labour Party has noted with dismay the statement by the Federal Government discrediting the European Union’s conclusion on the 2023 General Election wherein it faulted the modalities by which the conclusion was reached.
“We see this face-saving measure by the Federal Government which is coming days after the submission of the report as feeble and medicine after death. It will interest the government to note that the European Union’s report is only one out of numerous submissions by other international observers who have described the outcome of the election as a shame and an exercise that did not reflect the will of the majority of Nigerians.
“Labour Party stands by the position of the EU observation mission. We have always said that this election was massively rigged in favour of the APC and their candidate. What the FG is saying is just an afterthought and a shameless effort to mask the obvious. Even the blind can see, the deaf can hear and they know this election was manipulated.
“Huge pieces of evidence abound for even the deaf and the blind to hear and feel. We are only hoping that the judiciary will dispense justice without fear or favour in the interest of the nation and posterity. Nigerians already know the true winner of the 2023 presidential election and no amount of slandering, denial, or rebuttal can change the fact that the party in power has no mandate of the electorate.
“We must also note that whatever position the INEC has taken is with active connivance with the Federal Government to deny the electorate and it clearly shows that INEC is not in any way independent. The electoral commission action is at the beck and call of the federal government and we know it. But Nigerians are looking up to the Judiciary for justice. That’s where we stand,” the statement concluded.
