Festus Keyamo, the Minister of State for Labor and Employment, has insisted that Bola Tinubu, who will take office as President on March 1, is the victor in the presidential election that was held on February 25.
According to what Keyamo claimed, Tinubu won the election with a lead of 2,693,193 votes over Mr. Peter Obi, who was running for the Labour Party (LP).
According to a tweet posted by the Minister on Tuesday, an allegation of electoral malpractice in just one State cannot overturn the entire result of the election if it did not affect the result that was declared.
He went on to say that the evidence that would be admissible in court to prove that someone had voted more than once might be very different from the evidence that was put together to make what he called “fanciful documentaries.”
His tweet stated, in part, “So, let me educate the unlearned fellows as to how electoral jurisprudence works so that no one deceives them: If you allege electoral malpractice in just ONE STATE and you do 100 TV documentaries on it, it cannot and will not upturn the overall result of the election in the event that when you subtract or add the result of that ONE STATE to the overall tally, the margin between both candidates will still not be obliterated.”
