The federal government has rejected the final report of the European Union (EU) election observation mission in Nigeria on the 2023 polls.
On Tuesday, the EU mission presented its report on the general election in Abuja.
Barry Andrews, the chief observer, said the report was based on the analysis of compliance with Nigeria’s regional and international commitments for democratic elections.
Andrews faulted INEC for the operational challenges and glitches experienced with the bimodal voter accreditation system (BVAS) and the result viewing portal, saying the discrepancies severely damaged public confidence in the electoral body.

A chieftain of the opposition All Progressives Congress in Bayelsa State, Preye Aganaba, has condemned the stagnant growth of the state under the Peoples Democratic Party, saying the state must join the ruling APC at the centre to speed up development.
Aganaba, who stated this while speaking as a guest on a live radio interview on Rhythm 94.7FM in Yenagoa, at the weekend, claimed that the state governor, Douye Diri, was confused and had shown an absolute lack of ideology to position Bayelsa on the path of growth and development.
According to him, the APC governorship candidate in the November 11 election, Timipre Sylva, was the only hope of the state to align with the centre and urged the people to take advantage of the opportunity.
The former governorship aspirant said Sylva possessed the capacity, experience and network to win the forthcoming polls and speed up the development of the state.
