The Action Alliance (AA) and the Action Peoples Party (APP) have rejected the call by the Labour Party (LP) for the resignation of the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Professor Mahmood Yakubu.

Recall that the LP had called for Yakubu’s resignation on Thursday through its Director-General of the Obi-Datti Presidential Campaign, Mr. Akin Osuntokun, who accused the INEC boss of manipulating the 2023 presidential election.

However, the AA and the APP said that the LP’s call was baseless and unfortunate.

The two parties urged the LP to accept the outcome of the election and to focus on rebuilding the party for future elections.

In a statement, the National Chairman of the AA, Barrister Kenneth Udeze, said that the LP was only trying to distract the public from the fact that its candidate, Mr. Peter Obi, did not win the election.
