“In the recent presidential election in Nigeria, polling stations were marked by violence, delays, & allegations of tampering. You can thank electoral commission Chairman Mahmood Yakubu and the Pres. Buhari for one of the most flawed elections in history.”
We should recall the Nigeria has recently concluded their Presidential election which saw the emergence of Bola Ahmed Tinubu as the President Elect of Nigeria.
According to reports and videos that circulated on the Social media during the election, people were reported to have been attacked by thugs, especially those that voted around some polling units in Lagos state.
