The All Progressives Congress has kicked against the call by the Peoples Democratic Party, the Labour Party and the African Democratic Congress for the resignation of the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Mahmood Yakubu.


The APC presidential campaign council in a counter press conference on Tuesday, shortly after the opposition parties’ news briefing, said the presidential and National Assembly elections held on Saturday were credible enough.

Speaking, the spokesman for the APC campaign council, Festus Keyamo, said it was “legally wrong” to call for the altering of the electoral process when the results had not even not even been declared.

“They actually called on the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), to intervene; to interfere with the process.  First of all, those demands are not possible under the law,” Keyamo said.
