The Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, has said he won’t step down following the call by the Labour Party (LP) and the People’s Democratic Democratic Party (PDP) for him to resign.

The PDP and Labour Party claimed that fraud, intimidation, and violence disrupted Saturday’s presidential election.

But responding through Rotimi Oyekanmi, his Chief Press Secretary, the INEC Chairman, said contrary to the insinuation by both parties, results emanating from the States point to a free, fair, and credible process.

The commission also said the allegation by Senator Dino Melaye that Yakubu allocated scores to parties is unfounded and irresponsible.

“To be sure, aggrieved parties are free to approach the courts to ventilate their concerns and wait for the matter to be resolved. Making inciting comments capable of causing violence or unrest is unacceptable.

“The 2023 General election processes are in their final stages of completion. It is only fair for aggrieved parties to allow the conclusion of the process and approach the courts with their evidences to pursue their cases

“There are laid down procedures for aggrieved parties or candidates to follow when they are dissatisfied about the outcome of an election. Such procedures do not include calling on the INEC Chairman to resign or for the election to be cancelled.”
