A chieftain of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP), Ambassador Olufemi Ajadi Oguntoyinbo has called on the Supreme Court to declare the candidate of the party in the March 18, 2023, governorship election in Taraba State, Professor Yahaya Muhammed Bello as the duly elected governor of the state.

 

Oguntoyinbo, who was the NNPP’s governorship candidate in Ogun State, also explained that the clash between the Police and military at the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) office in Taraba State on March 20, 2023, led to the delay in result collation of the  Governorship election in the state.

 

According to him, during the collation period, the NNPP sent a written complaint on Wukari Result claiming overvoting and results in variance with the results in iRev and accredited voters on BVAS and called for review.

 

He further stated that during the collation, the complaint was discussed based on the Electoral Act 2022 64(5) for possible review at the collation level because the results were alleged to have been doctored.

 

He said after lengthy deliberation, the INEC Legal Officer explained that the review would only be done in Abuja after the Application for Review.
