President of Arewa Youth Consultative Forum (AYCF), Alhaji Yerima Shettima on Friday said that the victory of President Bola Tinubu at the election tribunal has vindicated the earlier position of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
INEC has described the 2023 round of elections as an improvement on free, fair, and transparent elections in Nigeria.
To Shettima, the court’s ruling has once again put “detractors” and “senseless regional agitators” to shame and has also proven the integrity and impartiality of the INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmud Yakubu.
“This well-considered verdict has further strengthened the belief that INEC under Yakubu’s leadership is a true embodiment of democracy and justice.
“Yakubu’s commitment to conducting free, fair, and credible elections in Nigeria is evident in the recent elections where many observers except a few sponsored ones, commended the conduct of INEC and its officials. His leadership and professionalism have earned him the respect of both local and international communities.
