Peter Obi, the running mate of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in a recent statement in Abuja said that no nation can grow with rigged elections.

Obi noted that the rigging of the February 23, 2019 presidential election has damaged the ongoing fight against corruption and tainted the integrity of those behind the rigging, adding that the process through which people emerge into offices is far more important than what they do thereafter.

Election rigging “is the root of corruption as it goes to impact negatively on the political and economic growth of the country,” he said.

INEC had declared President Muhammadu Buhari, the candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), the winner of the February 23 presidential election.
