Muhammed has praised President Muhammadu Buhari for conducting the best election in the history of Nigeria. He further stated that the opposition’s reaction to the President’s comments was predictable and has exposed them as sore losers.
According to a source, the President’s analysis of the reasons behind the opposition’s defeat in the 2023 elections was deemed indisputable.
The source further stated that the Labour Party’s Peter Obi and the Peoples Democratic Party’s Atiku Abubakar lost the election as a result of overconfidence and complacency.
President Muhammadu Buhari has been praised for delivering a free, fair, and credible election, which has cemented his legacy. According to Mohammed, the President has made it clear that he values the integrity of the election over winning his state and several of his party’s key strongholds. As a result, he has ensured that all parties have an equal opportunity to compete fairly.
According to the Minister, the opposition’s excessive confidence leading up to the election was fueled by a barrage of social media propaganda and manipulated opinion polls.
These tactics were allegedly intended to deceive foreign supporters and some members of the international media into falsely reporting that the opposition was on track for a victory, when in reality they were headed towards a crushing defeat.
According to Muhammed, the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, emerged victorious in the presidential election by securing the majority of votes cast and meeting the constitutional requirement of obtaining at least 25% of votes in two-thirds of all states in the Federation and the Federal Capital Territory.
According to the results, it appears that none of the opposition parties were able to fulfil the necessary requirements for winning the presidential election. Despite their pre-election promises, they fell short of their goals.
The opposition has been accused of relying on international observers to support their unfounded allegations of election rigging.
According to Muhammed, the opposition parties’ claim has been refuted by a respected US diplomat who confirmed that the APC presidential candidate had undoubtedly won the election.
According to sources, Ambassador Johnnie Carson, a respected US diplomat who co-led the National Democratic Institute and International Republican Institute International Election Observation Mission to Nigeria, stated that the APC candidate was the clear winner of the polls. However, it appears that this statement has been conveniently overlooked by some individuals.
According to the speaker, it appears that some individuals overlooked the fact that the African Union Election Observation Mission to Nigeria had reported a calm and peaceful atmosphere in 95% of the polling units visited. He further noted that this report was the basis for many countries, such as the US and the UK, to promptly extend their congratulations to the successful APC presidential candidate.
In a recent statement, Mohammed criticized the opposition’s claims that the delay in promptly uploading election results to the IReV portal utilized by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had a negative impact on the credibility of the election.
The credibility of the presidential election has been called into question by the opposition’s suggestion that the delay in uploading the results onto IReV was intentional. However, this claim has been refuted as fraudulent by those involved in the election process. The alleged actions have been described as a form of blackmail and deception carried out by individuals who are believed to be in a state of desperation.
According to the Minister, the opposition Labour Party has made history by being the first distant third-place finisher in a presidential election to claim victory.
