The INEC Chairman, Professor Mahmood Yakubu has advised aggrieved Political Parties to seek redress in Court if not Satisfied with the 2023 Presidential Election.
In a statement made available to Journalists by the chief press Secretary to INEC Chairman, Rotimi Oyekanmi said calls by the Labour Party and the People’s Democratic Democratic Party on the INEC Chairman to resign and the allegation by Dino Melaye that the INEC Chairman allocated scores to parties is not only misplaced but unfounded and irresponsible.
The Statement noted that contrary to the insinuation by both parties, results emanating from the States point to a free, fair, and credible process, stating that there are laid down procedures for aggrieved parties or candidates to follow when they are dissatisfied with the outcome of an election.
He said Such procedures do not include calling on the INEC Chairman to resign or for the election to be canceled.

Oyekanmi said aggrieved parties are free to approach the courts to vent their concerns and wait for the matter to be resolved stating that Making inciting comments capable of causing violence or unrest is unacceptable.
The statement adds that as 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 evidence to pursue their cases.
