Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi defeated Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the February 25 poll, according to British Broadcast Corporation (BBC) report.

Confirming that some results of Nigeria’s 2023 presidential election were altered, the report detailed how anomalies in Rivers contributed to the emergence of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Bola Tinubu as president-elect.

Accessing results amassed by Tinubu and Peter Obi of Labour Party (LP) in the State, the BBC found that results obtained from polling units across the state differed from what was announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

According to BBC, Tinubu did not garner the most votes in the State.

After reviewing results from over 6,000 polling units, the BBC said, “We found an increase of just over 106,000 in Mr Tinubu’s vote in the official declaration when compared with our polling station tally – almost doubling his total in the State.

“In contrast, Mr Obi’s vote had fallen by over 50,000.”
