Today, the chairman of the presidential advisory committee against corruption (PACAC), Itse Sagay, has claimed that the presidential election conducted on February 25 was the “best election” Nigeria has ever organised.
Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) was declared the winner of the presidential election by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
However, major opposition parties in the election have filed petitions to challenge the outcome of the election, accusing INEC of irregularities. They also cited issues of electoral violence and voter suppression.
Speaking during a programme on Channels TV, on Sunday, Sagay said the electoral exercise portrayed “accuracy and reflection of the feelings of Nigerians”, compared to previous polls held in the country.
He added that the defeat of APC by the Labour Party (LP) in Lagos during the election was enough confirmation that it was “credible”.
“So, we had good elections in 2011, 2015, and 2019. But in terms of representing or interpreting what Nigerians feel, it  is the best election we have ever had,” Sagay said.
“If you look at the ways things have gone with the BVAS, the very idea that the APC was defeated in Lagos, that should make you realise immediately that these are very credible elections. If you go through the whole country, it is the same sort of accuracy and reflection of the feelings of Nigerians.”
