Despite the ongoing rejection of the February 25 Presidential election results over non- compliance with provisions of the 2022 Electoral Act, by many political parties, the Presidency says the election witnessed a marked improvement over all previous elections.
The Presidency in a statement signed by Garba Shehu, one of President Muhammadu Buhari’s Spokesmen, premised his position on the grounds that “No one has disputed the result of the election, except the candidates that fell short”.
According to him, “The US State department congratulated President-elect Bola Tinubu of the governing All Progressives Congress, and the people of Nigeria on the outcome of the “competitive election.” British Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak, was also quick to congratulate the winner, on this victory. And so, did many others in ECOWAS and the African Union”.
He acknowledged that “the election may not have been perfect, but due to the steps the government has taken, it is an improvement on previous polls.
