"You want to rig election from a man who knows how many gallons of oil is stolen every year", Nollywood actor Kenneth Okonkwo queries Inec chairman over peter Obi


Popular Nigerian actor turned politician Kenneth Okonkwo has queried INEC for allegedly rigging the just concluded 2023 elections.

The gallant Labour Party card bearer via his Instagram page insisted that his Principal Peter Obi must have won the elections.Okonkwo took it upon himself to remind INEC officials of how Obi fought for his Governorship mandate in Anambra State and won against Chris Ngige.

“A man that knows how many gallons of oil that’s being stolen every year in Nigeria. You want to rig the election without asking questions? The fear of Peter Obi is the beginning of INEC sweating in the court room defending itself. Ask Mazi Chris Ngige what happened in 2006 when they stole Obi’s mandate. Ndi ala, ” Kenneth Okonkwo wrote.

Recall that they have been speculations across Nigeria that the 2023 presidential election may end up in a constitutional crisis.

With most of the results of last Saturday’s presidential election announced, it is looking likely that the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, will end up with the highest number of valid votes.

Tinubu will also have garnered at least 25% votes in at least 24 states of the federation.

But the 1999 Constitution says 24 states and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

This has led to different interpretations.

The results from the FCT showed that APC had just 19.8% and Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had 16.1%, compared to Labour Party’s Peter Obi who picked up 61%.

“There’s no run off,” Barrister Kwami Adadevoh, whose legal practice straddles between Nigeria, Ghana and the UK has said. 

“The other two (Tinubu and Atiku) have won 25% in 24 states.

“The FCT is not a state. Otherwise the reading you’re applying would require that even if someone won 25% in 36 states but didn’t win 25% in Abuja then the person hasn’t won.

“So we should we be expecting INEC’s announcement of a winner.
