Abuja, Feb, 28, 2023 – The African Democratic Congress (ADC) says it is not part of any group calling on INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmoud Yakubu, to resign over the conduct of the presidential election.

It said it had not called for any fresh elections.

A statement issued by ADC Board of Trustees Chairman, Sen. (Mrs.) Patricia Akwashiki, urged all parties to remain law abiding.

“This is not the position of the African Democratic Congress (ADC).

“Ralph Nwosu, who is the immediate past Chairman of the ADC, does not speak for the ADC and cannot speak for the ADC,” she said.

The party said it was not part of any action to undermine INEC.

 ” We cannot be a party to any action that will undermine the integrity of INEC or lead to a breakdown of law and order.

”When the final results are announced by INEC, we will have an informed reaction.

“The ADC will not be a party to any attempt to truncate the ongoing electoral process.

” All parties to this process must remain law abiding and remember that the Electoral Act clearly spells out guidelines for redress,” the statement said. (GBN)
