25% in FCT: Obi-Datti Campaign raises alarm over alleged plot to alter results

Oseloka Obaze

The Campaign Manager of Obi-Datti Presidential Campaign Organization in the February 25, 2023 election, Mr. Oseloka H. Obaze, has warned the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, against tampering with the IRev as it concerns the Federal Capital Territory, FCT.

In a tweet on Saturday, July 1, 2023, Mr. Obaze said that intelligence reaching the Campaign Office shows that INEC is trying to yield to pressure to tinker with the results of some states, including the FCT to enable the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, to be in good standing.

“According to our source, INEC is tempering with the machines used in the election to adjust FCT results to give the APC candidate, the much-needed 25%, which he did not get as per the initial INEC declaration and for which he is being challenged at the presidential election tribunal,” Obaze said.

He added: “It’s not clear how the electoral commission can brazenly carry out such bizarre action but given the abracadabra they did to announce the APC Candidate winner by 4 a.m., there is nothing to be taken for granted.”

Mr. Obaze went on to warn that INEC and the ruling APC may be taking the adherence to the rule of law and due process disposition of Nigerians in general and the Obidient Movement, in particular, for granted, but it would be courting catastrophe for them to want to pour salt into an open wound inflicted on Nigeria's electorate.

The former United Nations diplomat reminded INEC that what they are trying to do is tantamount to raising a dead horse and that whether reports were fake or real, the commission should know the level of public confidence in them has long been eroded.
