INEC yet to receive NASS resolution on release of results

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is yet to receive the resolution of the National Assembly asking it to release the result of the June 12, 1993 presidential election.

The military government of Gen. Ibrahim Babangida halted the release of the results and the announcement of the winner after states had released the results. Gen. Babangida, annulled the results and declared the election invalid.

The resolution of the Senate followed President Muhammadu Buhari’s declaration of June 12 as Democracy Day and the posthumous award of Grand Commander of the Federal Republic (GCFR) to Chief Moshood Kashimawo Olawale Abiola, the acclaimed winner of the election.

However, INEC yesterday said it was yet to receive the resolution of the NASS on the release of the result. Mr. Oluwole Osaze-Uzi, Director, Voter Education and Publicity, told The Nation correspondent in a telephone chat that the commission was yet to receive the copy of the resolution.
