Meanwhile, Grammy-winning Nigerian singer, Damini Ogulu better known as Burna Boy issued warning to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to do the right thing.
He called on the electoral body to respect the decision of the electorates who trooped out enmasse on February 25 for the presidential and National Assembly elections.
Burna Boy urged INEC to not allow itself to be used as a tool for the manipulation or rigging of the 2023 election.
He gave the note of warning via his social media page after being called out by Nigerians who expected him and his colleagues to lend their voice to the demand for free and fair elections.
Burna said; “Let Nigeria decide o! @inecnigeria. No try any result magic”.
The votes cast across the 35 states and Federal Capital Territory are still being collated at state levels. For the polling units that violence marred voting, the INEC chairman, Mahmood Yakubu said there will be rerun.
