The ECOWAS, the AU and the UN has called on all candidates, political parties and all Nigerians to continue to exercise patience, calm and restraint, in order to allow for the full results of the election to be released by the Independent National Elections Commission (INEC).

The call was necessitated by the rejection of the results of the presidential election of February 23, 2019 by one of the participating political parties, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), which are still in the process of being released by the INEC.

“At the conclusion of the process, all aggrieved parties and persons are encouraged to resort to legal means to seek redress, in accordance with the Constitution and relevant laws of Nigeria, and as previously agreed in the Peace Accord of 13 February, 2019,” a joint statement said on Tuesday.

The PDP on Monday said it would not accept the results being announced by the INEC, alleging that the polls’ figures are been tweaked to favour the ruling All Peoples Congress (APC).

The Ghana news Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana's independence and charged with the "dissemination of truthful unbiased news". It was the first news agency to be established in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore been operating in the unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
