The founder of Stanbic IBTC Bank Plc, Atedo Peterside has come out to say that he is completely disappointed with the Independent National Electoral Commission’s performance during the recent Presidential elections.

He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to him, the result uploaded by the commission during the presidential election is an insult to anyone’s intelligence in the country because we all saw the malpractices that took place during voting across Nigeria.

He added that the steps taken by Peter Obi and Atiku Abubakar to challenge the result in court is the right thing to do, and whatever is agreed upon in court, Nigerians would accept.

His words, “If they go through this process and the judges convince us that everything was done correctly and we adopt the numbers, whoever is the winner, we will congratulate the person.”

“But for now it is premature; when I can see with my own eyes what INEC has uploaded, it is an insult to everybody’s intelligence; it is premature; people who are rushing to congratulate him have not taken the trouble to even look at the available information or the evidence. INEC is each to its own.”

“It is a chance for the INEC chairman and others to redeem themselves; he should insist that everybody upload the results after voting. We cannot have one or two states hold back the result after voting and start thump printing endlessly and claiming that they could not transmit the result. INEC cannot fail twice. They cannot repeat that same mistake.”
