INEC Declared A Verified Result – UK minister of state for Africa

The United Kingdom declares that Nigerians can trust the results of the presidential elections held on Saturday.

President Muhammad Bukhari, a candidate from the All-Progressive Congress (AIC), won the election from Atiq Abubakar of the Democratic Party (NDP) in second place.

Harriet Baldwin, Minister of State for Great Britain in Africa, said in a statement released Wednesday that the announced result corresponds to a parallel voting process in civil society.

“I congratulate President Bukhari on his appointment for a second term as President of Nigeria,” she said in a statement.

“The UK is a long-time friend and partner of Nigeria and Nigerians, and a stable and prosperous Nigeria benefits Africa and the world.

“Nigerians have demonstrated resilience and commitment to democracy.” The result, announced by the Nigerian electoral commission, is consistent with the results obtained in a parallel voting process in civil society. Thanks to our international partners, the United Kingdom believes that Nigerians can trust the result. ”

Atiku rejected the result, calling the elections the worst in the history of Nigeria. After the announcement on Wednesday, he said that the elections had witnessed the theft of the grant of the will of the people.

Reacting, however, Baldwin called on the opposition to question the results in a peaceful way.

“We also recognize that independent Nigerian voices expressed concern about the electoral process, in particular, logistics and the collection of results, as well as reports of intimidation of electoral officials,” she said.

“We urge any party or person who wants to challenge the process to do so peacefully and through the right legal channel, and we urge the Nigerian authorities to thoroughly investigate all allegations of misconduct and take the necessary measures against those found guilty.”

“My thoughts also concern the families and friends of those who died as a result of election-related violence, and no one should die in the exercise of their democratic rights. We will continue to support Nigeria and its civil society with regard to the conclusions of these elections and the strengthening of democracy. ”
