Supreme Court determined presidential election result because INEC failed – Sam Amadi

Africa-Press – Nigeria. The director of the Abuja School of Social and Political Thoughts, Sam Amadi, has said the Supreme Court determined the outcome of the 2023 presidential election.

Amadi blamed the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, for failing to prosecute the 2023 presidential election.

Amadi said the National Assembly should probe INEC’s expenditures during the 2023 general election.

He also charged INEC to explain why its server failed during the 2023 presidential election.

The public affairs analyst also noted that the electoral umpire should be able to explain to Nigerians why its results were not collated and declared electronically as provided in the INEC electoral Act as amended.

He spoke at an event organised by the Labour Party to mark this year’s Democracy Day and was contained in a statement by the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Obiora Ifoh.

According to Amadi: “Nigerians and indeed the National Assembly should be courageous enough to probe INEC expenditure during the 2023 general elections.

“The failure of the INEC server during the presidential election with all the money given to them. It is appalling that no one spoke about the huge amount of money given Mahmood Yakubu and all the INEC commissioners to prosecute a failed election, failed because the Supreme Court has to step in to determine the result of elections.”

He noted that the ongoing electoral reform must reject the inconsistency of allowing the presidency to appoint the INEC chairman.

Amadi stressed that this gives room for election rigging before the votes are cast.
