In a bid to express their dissatisfaction over the outcome of the February 25, 2023 presidential elections, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has asked its members to join a protest at the headquarters of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Abuja today March 6.
Recall that the Independent National Electoral Commission INEC on Wednesday, March 1, declared Bola Tinubu, candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), as the winner of the election.PDP and some other parties have kicked against the result saying INEC wasn't transparent as the election was done flawed. They particularly kicked against the non-use of the Bimordal VotersAccreditation System BVAS in many polling units.
PDP rejected the declaration of Tinubu as the president-elect, saying Atiku won the election.
In a notice by Ibrahim Bashir, director of admin, Atiku campaign council, the party informed its members that the protest would take off from the Legacy House in the Maitama area by 10 am.
“I am directed to respectfully invite Your Excellencies: The National Chairman, Dr Iyrochia Ayu, The Vice Presidential Candidate and Governor of Delta State, Dr. Ifeanyichukwu Okowa, Governors of; Akwa Ibom and Chairman of PCC, Mr Udom Emmanuel, Sokoto state and DG of PCC, Rt Hon Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, and Governors of Bayelsa, Edo, Adamawa, Bauchi, Taraba and Osun States; Former Senate Presidents, Senator David Mark and Senator Dr Abubakar Bukola Saraki, BOT members, NEC members, PDP Senators and House of Representatives Members, NWC members of the party, DDGs, Directors, Deputies and Assistant Directors of NCMC; Members of the PCC; Leadership of People Living With Disabilities and all other Stakeholders to a protest match to INEC Office.
