Leader of the Yoruba socio-political group, Ayo Adebanjo, has faulted the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) over the conduct of the presidential poll that produced Bola Ahmed Tinubu as President-elect.

Last week, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared Bola Tinubu, candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), as the winner of the presidential election.

Tinubu polled 8,794,726 votes while Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had the second-highest figure with 6,984,520 votes, and Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP) was next with 6,101,533.

In an interview with Arise TV, Adebanjo said the outcome of the election is “just the result of a bad government; a disaster that God will help us to get rid of”.

He faulted the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for its conduct, adding that the commission needs to answer certain questions raised by Nigerians.

“This is just a sham which will be pulled in due course. This is a game we all see, we’re all living witnesses to see.

“Why don’t you follow the law for the election that would just be peaceful? Those who are criticising, they leave the issue, they take up on OBJ, it is the message that the man says you have not done ABC, reply to that. You pick on the messenger.

“On this occasion now, it is not a question of whether you win or not, but is it the method the law provides for the election, have you followed it? Let them answer that, that’s the problem, why are you beating about the bush?
