A popular social critic in Nigeria, Aisha Yesufu, asserts that numerous polling unit results from the presidential election on Saturday were altered.
Yesufu claimed that even Lagos State, which the Labour Party (LP) won, was rigged when appearing as a guest on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Thursday night.
She asserted that the All Progressives Congress (APC) received fewer votes than the INEC officially assigned to them.
Yesufu said, “What we are saying is that even the Lagos State [figure] was rigged, the number that APC got is much lower than what we finally have. And one of the things we are talking about is that in a lot of polling units, results were changed.
“And I think one of the things they forgot was the fact that there is going to be an iReV where polling unit results were going to be uploaded; it is not what they normally have where they just collate and have everything in a lump. And so people can see and a lot of people have the results.”
Recall that APC’s Bola Tinubu was announced the winner of the February 25 presidential poll on Wednesday morning.
