Africa-Press – Nigeria. A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Femi Fani-Kayode has lambasted the European Union, EU, over its report on the 2023 general elections.
EU, had in its report last week, said the poll was characterized by irregularities, stating that the outcome of the election damaged the trust reposed on the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.
EU also tagged Fani-Kayode and Festus Keyamo, former Minister of Labour and Employment as peddlers of fake news during the electioneering season.
Reacting to the report, FFK, a former Minister of Aviation, in a tweet on his Twitter handle on Wednesday accused the EU of taking side, saying they are pained because their preferred candidate lost the election.
According to him, the report was aimed at diminishing, discrediting and tarnishing the victory of President Bola Tinubu.
He, however, expressed confidence that the president would complete his two terms of office despite the controversy surrounding his election on February 25.
He wrote, “The truth is that the EU is still smarting over the fact that its preferred candidate lost. We know what happened behind the scenes but that is a story for another day.
“The most important thing is that PBAT prevailed. Now they are trying to diminish, discredit and tarnish his victory by saying that the election was flawed with irregularities and rigged and that his front line generals and warriors, who stood with him in the heat of battle, indulged in fake news.
“They are nothing but poor losers and lost souls and whether they like it or not PBAT is here to stay and, God-willing, will lead Nigeria for the next 8 years!
“I am glad that the Presidency has responded to their dishonest, disrespectful and contemptuous report in a decisive and appropriate manner. We need say no more”.
