The Presidency says the June 12, 1993, saga won’t repeat itself in Nigeria again.
President Muhammadu Buhari’s spokesman, Garba Shehu, said the presidential election allegedly marred by irregularities would not be annulled.
He made this claim via a statement titled “At the 5th United Nations Conference on Least Developed Countries, LDCs. ”
Shehu urged candidates and political parties not satisfied with the outcome of the election to approach the court.
The statement reads partly: “Before the trip, he was faced with orchestrated attempts to poison public opinion against national institutions, particularly the presidential election and its conduct by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, as an institution, against which vile and unsubstantiated allegations were hurled.
“The wishful thinkers appeared to assume that the June 12, 1993, election crisis, the worst ever since the civil war, could be recreated.”
Some presidential candidates had faulted the outcome of the February 25 election and have been asked to seek redress in Court.
