Veteran actor Kanayo O. Kanayo has criticized the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) over the outcome of the 2023 presidential election.
In a post on Instagram, the movie star said he decided to cancel all birthday celebrations due to the outcome of the poll.
Kanayo, who is a staunch supporter of the Labour Party’s presidential candidate Peter Obi, accused INEC of compromising the election results.
He faulted the electoral commission for failing to transmit the election results electronically through the use of the Bimodal Voters Accreditation System (BVAS), via the INEC Server, which resulted in the use of a manual collation system.
The movie star said:
“I am not celebrating my birthday today because INEC sold SHAME in the market. God bless you, my fans and well-wishers for your support and prayers.”
Meanwhile, a video has surfaced showing Nollywood actor Desmond Elliot and other Lagosians jubilating after Bola Tinubu won the presidential election.
The chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Mahmood Yakubu has officially declared Ahmed Bola Tinubu the winner of the 2023 presidential election.
Tinubu polled a total of 8,794,726 to defeat his closest rivals and candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP) who scored 6,984, 520 and 6,101,533 respectively.
