The founder of Stanbic IBTC Bank Plc, Atedo Peterside has said that he is completely disappointed with the Independent National Electoral Commission’s performance.
Peterside made this disclosure in an interview on Tuesday on Arise TV, commending the steps taken by Peter Obi and Atiku Abubakar of the Labour Party and Peoples Democratic Party, respectively, to challenge the result in court, saying that whatever is agreed upon in court, Nigerians would accept, especially after the judiciary would have done the right thing and be seen to be fair.

“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,” he said. “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.”

Speaking on what to expect for Saturday’s governorship and state house of assembly elections, Atedo said that the electoral commission can’t afford to make the same mistake that questioned its credibility, competence, and impartiality in the presidential election again.
