A lot of mixed reactions have inevitably continued to trail the 2023 general elections in Nigeria, most especially the Presidential election, even prior to the announcement of the eventual winner of the election, Senator Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Well, one of the reactions regards the aforementioned election that caught our attention is from a certain supporter of the Labour Party, LP, otherwise known as the Obidients, Ugochukwu Madu. The young man who travelled down to the country from his base outside Nigeria, to participate in the election. Meanwhile, even before the APC candidate, Tinubu, was declared winner of the election, Madu has already left the country, and visibly not happy and satisfied with the electoral process in the country.
In his tweet after departing the country, he made it clear that he’s going back to face his PhD program in the United States of America, and equally added that whoever Nigerians elect as their President that they should deal with the consequences as well.
“Back to base. O’Hare International airport, Chicago. Next stop, Cedar Rapids, then lowa city.
Let me face my PhD, whoever you elect na your body go hear am, no be me. Goodluck Nigeria,” his tweet reads.
Recall that lots of controversies have actually trailed the said election, most especially with the failure of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to transmit election results from each polling units to the commission’s online portal as promised. Which many people allegedly gave room for the manipulations of the actual results from votes cast, as such, decried the truncation of the will of the people.
Meanwhile, several prominent personalities in the country have called for either cancellation or suspension of the electoral process, even prior to the announcement of the eventual winner by INEC. On the other hand, some others urged the electoral body to continue with the collation of results, on the ground that whatever maybe the grievances of people can be sorted out afterwards, to avoid plunging the entire country into a serious crisis.
