2023: Accept defeat over election, FG hits Obi, Atiku

The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has advised the opposition parties to cease their complaints about the 2023 presidential election and acknowledge their resounding defeat in the election.

This was disclosed in a statement issued in Abuja on Sunday by the Minister’s Special Assistant on media, Segun Adeyemi.

He wrote, “Mr President’s analysis on the reasons for the opposition’s loss in the 2023 elections was incontrovertible.

“President Buhari deserves nothing but accolades for delivering undoubtedly the best election in Nigeria’s history, adding that the tempestuous but predictable reaction to the president’s comments by the opposition has shown them for what they are: shameless sore losers.

”President Muhammadu Buhari lived up to his billing by delivering a free, fair and credible election, and his legacy is assured. The President would rather lose his state and many of his party’s strongholds than tamper with the fidelity of the election, and that is why he provided a level playing field for all parties.

“Going by the results, none of the opposition parties met any of the conditions stipulated for winning the presidential election. They didn’t even come close, in spite of their pre-election grandstanding.

”They keep leaning on some international observers to justify their fraudulent claim that the election was rigged.

“They conveniently forgot what Ambassador Johnnie Carson, the revered US diplomat who co-led the National Democratic Institute and International Republican Institute International Election Observation Mission to Nigeria said that the APC candidate undoubtedly won the polls.

“The opposition’s insinuation that the failure to immediately upload the result of the presidential election onto IReV affected the credibility of the election is a fraud. It is an act of blackmail and deceit by desperate individuals.

”The opposition Labour Party, in particular, will go down in the history books as the first-ever distant third-place finisher in a presidential election anywhere to have bold-facedly claimed victory.”
