BIG SHAME TO APC!!! 60 Political Parties Did Not Endorse Buhari’s Victory, Presidency Lied

The Inter-Party Advisory Council, IPAC, has refuted reports that sixty Presidential Candidates and Chairmen of political parties, endorsed the 2019 Presidential poll that culminated in the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari, of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
IPAC, which is the only umbrella body of all political parties recognised by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, said that only six parties endorsed the election.
Recall, that a group, under the aegis of the G-60 Forum, had hailed the election and passed a vote of confidence on INEC.

According to the Chairman of the G-60 Forum, Muhammed Shittu, who is also the National Chairman of the Advanced Peoples Democratic Alliance, the controversy surrounding INEC’s server, is a deliberate ploy to destroy the integrity of the country’s electoral process.
He had also lambasted the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and its Presidential Candidate, Atiku Abubakar, for claiming victory and arguing that INEC transmitted results through a server.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President, Garba Shehu, had also in a statement, accepted the endorsement, saying that, the Presidential Candidates had displayed a sense of patriotism, and urged the opposition party to accept the loss with grace and maturity.

However, IPAC, in an interview, on Thursday, stated that only six political parties endorsed INEC, including the Advanced Peoples Democratic Alliance, the Allied Peoples Movement, and the Movement for the Restoration and Defence of Democracy.

The IPAC Spokesman, Akinloye Oyeniyi, said: “It is not true. There were just six (parties). There is nowhere that sixty political parties endorsed Buhari for anything, or spoke on anything about the Tribunal.

“I saw the Press Conference. Shittu was there. The MRDD, APN, and APDA, were also there. They were coordinated by APDA. The man in white that spoke, is the National Chairman of APDA. Nowhere did sixty parties endorse (Buhari), nor did anyone speak on behalf of sixty parties. There were just six.”
