The Federal Government has rejected the European Union – EU’s report on the 2023 general elections, describing the conclusions of the EU Electoral Observer Mission as “jaundiced”.
Dele Alake, the Special Adviser to President Bola Tinubu on Special Duties, Communications and Strategy, in a statement, urged the EU and other foreign interests to be objective in all their assessments of the internal affairs of the country and allow Nigeria to breathe.
Alake insisted that the February 25, 2023, presidential election was “clearly and fairly” won by Tinubu, the then candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC).
He also said the EU should allow Nigeria to breathe and not meddle in the affairs of the country.
Alake further stated that there is no substantial evidence provided by the EU or any foreign and local organization that is viable enough to impeach the integrity of the 2023 election outcomes.
According to him, Nigeria has put the elections behind, and Tinubu is facing the task of nation-building.
