This comes in the wake of former President Olusegun Obasanjo‘s recent statement calling for the INEC to cancel the results of Saturday’s presidential elections, which has prompted a backlash from the ruling party.

Festus Keyamo, Chief Spokesman of the APC presidential campaign council, defended the INEC, arguing that it was wrong for any candidate or party to call for a change in the process prior to official declaration of the results.

Prior to meeting Tinubu, the ECOWAS team had visited the homes of party candidates; Labour Party flag-bearer Peter Obi, New Nigeria People’s Party’s Rabiu Kwankwaso, and Peoples Democratic Party’s Atiku Abubakar.

Through these visits, the team demonstrated a commitment to maintain peaceful elections and involvement of all stakeholders.
