Lai Mohammed, Nigeria’s Information Minister, said it is fraudulent to claim that Bola Ahmed Tinubu did not win the 2023 presidential election because the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) failed to upload the results of the poll to its result viewing portal (IReV).
Mohammed attacked opposition political parties on Sunday over their reaction to President Muhammadu Buhari’s remarks on the outcome of the election.
Buhari said last week that the opposition lost in the poll due to overconfidence, complacency, and bad tactical moves. But the comment was greeted with criticism by different opposition parties who slammed the president for defending a “brazenly stolen” victory.
Defending Buhari and reiterating his position, Mohammed described the opposition as “shameless sore losers” for reproving the president.
