The Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, has inaugurated two internal committees to review and document the activities of the 2023 general election.
The committees, according to the electoral body, are the committee to conduct post-election reviews arising from the conduct of the 2023 general election and a 2023 general election report writing committee.
The commission made this known on its Twitter handle on Wednesday amid repeated adjournments of presidential election petitions by the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Abuja.
The INEC boss on March 1, 2023 declared Bola Tinubu of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) as the president-elect after the collation of results for the February 25 presidential election.
Yakubu in his declaration of the election results amid controversy and rejection of the election outcome by some Nigerians, declared that Tinubu, a 70-year-old former Lagos State governor polled a total of 8,794,726 votes to win the 2023 presidential election.
However, a former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) who came second and the former governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP) who came third, have filed petitions to challenge the process and outcome of the election.
