Six states including Adamawa, Akwa-Ibom, Bayelsa, Delta, Edo and Sokoto have dragged the federal government before the Supreme Court over the conduct, collation and announcement of the just concluded presidential and National Assembly elections.
The All Progressives Congress candidate Bola Ahmed Tinubu was declared the winner of the presidential election, but the States want the Supreme Court to nullify that decision.
They claimed that the Chairman of INEC’s announcement of the complete results of the presidential election at the National Collation Centre in Abuja was a clear breach of the Electoral Act.
According to them, they want a declaration that the non-uploading of the results of each of the 176,974 Polling Units nationwide, in respect of the presidential election and National Assembly Elections were not in accordance with the provisions of the electoral act.
Recall that the INEC declared Tinubu as having won the presidential election on Wednesday.
The electoral body has also issued Tinubu the certificate of return.
