Mahmood Yakubu said the duty of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is to conclude and collate the presidential result for final declaration.

He said on the problem of accredited voters not adding up to number of voters, Yajubu said the problem affects less than 2 per cent of voters and thus does not affect the general conclusion.

He said in Yobe and Akwa Ibom, the numbers add up.

He said on the request of the opening of the commission’s backlend for verification and cross checking of voters, he says it is not a matter of law. He said the discussion can be continued after the end of this process.

Osita Chidoka representing the Peoples Democratic Party said there was a discrepancy of more than 1,600, 000 voters in terms of registered voters.

He said the cancelled votes affected more than 2 million voters. He claimed there were 5.1 million votes that cannot be accounted for and thus called for a rerun.

In his response, Yakubu said the asserting that 5.1 million voters could not vote because of card readers is not true. He also said when card readers are deliberately circumvented, votes will be cancelled.

He said constitutionally, he has two roles. Firstly, as a the chief commissioner of the election, he will announce the national collation of results.

Secondly, as the returning officer for the presidential election, he will make an official declaration of the winner of the election.

The INEC chairman announced that Muhammadu Buhari of the APC scored 15, 191, 847 votes. while Atiku Abubakar of the PDP scored 11, 262, 978.

Total valid votes – 2, 732, 4583

Rejected votes 1, 289, 607

Total votes cast – 2, 861, 4190

Yakubu said following the collation, he said he now performs his role as returning officer and listed all the names of the presidential candidates and their total votes.

He said Muhammadu Buhari is declared winner of the election and returned elected.

My Dear Nigerians,

First and foremost, I give thanks to Almighty God Who has spared our lives to witness another victory for Nigerian democracy and victory for our party APC.

2. I thank the millions of Nigerians who voted to re-elect me as your president for the next four years. I am deeply humbled and profoundly grateful to you for judging me worthy of continuing to serve you and for your peaceful conduct.3. In particular, I would like to thank Asiwaju Bola Tinubu for his masterful leadership as Co-chair of the Campaign Council. I would like to also thank the Party Chairman Adams Oshiomhole, the Director General of the Campaign Council Rotimi Amaechi, all members of the Presidential Campaign Council and other various Support Groups.

4. My grateful thanks to all those who contributed to the logistical expenses of the campaign in such a vast country like Nigeria.

5. I also thank the millions of volunteers, self-appointed overseers, canvassers, agents, escorts and sentries who sacrificed so much of their time and resources to ensure the success of these elections. I do not have the words adequate to thank them.

6. Although Saturday’s elections were relatively peaceful, troublemakers in a handful of states attempted to disrupt an otherwise orderly process. Security agencies will bring to justice all those arrested in the process.

7. I am very sad at the grievous loss of lives during these elections. Security agencies will step up their efforts to protect voters in the forthcoming State elections.

8. I would like to commend our security agencies, as severely overstretched as they are, for handling the difficult task of securing the country during the election period.

9. I will like to make a special appeal to my supporters not to gloat or humiliate the opposition. Victory is enough reward for your efforts.

10. We give thanks also to our Domestic and International observers for contributing to the success of our elections and for their interest in our country and our developing democracy.

11. The new Administration will intensify its efforts in Security, Restructuring the Economy and Fighting Corruption. We have laid down the foundation and we are committed to seeing matters to the end. We will strive to strengthen our unity and inclusiveness so that no section or group will feel left behind or left out.

12. I thank you for your support and may God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria

“Yesterday Sunday, 24th Feb, 2019 Mayor Gbenga Adewusi @bayowagbengaadewusiswagatv visited Baba Suwe on his hospital bed and having been briefed of the current situation, he initiated a SOS to Rev. (Mrs.) Esther Ajayi @love_of_christ_generation through Bro Biodun Paseda @abbeyway27 to see where the philantrophist can help Baba Suwe.
Immediately she offered to support with TEN MILLION NAIRA(10million naira) and his flight ticket to support whatever Baba Suwe had gathered in order to get thorough medical assistance quickly. She spoke to Baba Suwe and offered him prayers.

And early this Monday morning, she fulfilled her promise(Shai! some rich people don’t know Monday oh. No Monday excuse, wawu!). My sense of humour though. On behalf of Baba Suwe, his family, fans and colleagues, we say a big thank to our mother, Rev. Esther Ajayi for her USUAL KINDNESS, may you never fall. This will go a long way. We shall loose no time to facilitate the trip abroad at the instance of Medical experts in LUTH working tenaciously on getting Baba Suwe a huge recovery to enable him fly for that long haul with little or no risk.
