Following the irregularities that marred the conduct of the National Assembly election in Baruten/Kaiama Federal Constituency, Kwara State on Saturday February 25, we condemned in totality the outcomes of the election as declared by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
Glaringly, the process was characterised by massive irregularities including alleged brazen manipulation and distortion of figures, vote buying, cooking up results where elections did not hold among others which further undermined the credibility of the process.
It’s also important to note that the election was conducted in substantial non-compliance with the Electoral Act 2022 as amended with the attendant effect that the results handed down did not reflect the wishes and common interest of the good people of Baruten/Kaiama Federal Constituency.
In light of the above, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Buko Campaign Organization hereby reject result of Baruten/Kaiama Federal Constituency election.
In conclusion, we want to use this medium to appeal for calm and patience amongst the lovers of Musa Idris Buko, let us maintain the peace we have shown throughout the campaign period while we embark on the next step.
We trust the judiciary to reclaim this stolen mandate and restore the glory of our democracy.
Director, Media and Communications to Hon. Musa Idris Buko
