Former President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan on Tuesday led representatives of the ECOWAS Election Monitoring Team to visit Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, presidential candidate of the APC.
Jonathan came with former President of Ghana, John Mahama during the visit in Abuja.
The APC’s presidential candidate is leading in the race to become Nigeria’s next president after President Muhammadu Buhari.
The ECOWAS team also met with Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP), Rabiu Kwankwaso of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) and Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The ECOWAS team appealed for calm in the country while calling on INEC to address the concerns and procedural questions raised so far by different stakeholders.
Earlier on Tuesday, the LP, PDP and African Democratic Congress (ADC) said the deliberate refusal of the INEC chairman, Mahmood Yakubu to respect the upload of results electronically as stipulated by Section 60 of the Electoral Act 2022 is unacceptable.
