A pro-democracy group, Free Nigeria Movement has taken its protest against the outcome of the 2023 general elections to the United Nations.

The protesters led by the Convener Comrade Moses Ogidi-Paul converged in their thousands at the United Nations office in Abuja on Thursday.

The group demanded the immediate sacking and arrest of Chairman, Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Prof. Mahmoud Yakubu for flouting the electoral body’s guidelines, the Electoral Act and his rush to declare a winner.

It also called for the cancellation of the February 25th presidential election.

The group demanded compensation of all victims of electoral violence and establishment of a Truth and Reconciliation Committee in Lagos and other flashpoints of violence.

The Convener, Comrade Moses Ogidi-Paul said the group’s resolve is “built on truth, faith and hope and on the risky, if not suicidal conviction, that illegality will always birth illegality.”

He said in the last twenty–one days, members of the group have made a consistent call for the cancellation of the presidential election risking their lives amidst threats of attack by political thugs and violent merchants some of whom have since camped at the Unity Fountain.

He said, “The Nigerian youth represents the most abused demography in the unlawful conduct of Prof. Mahmoud Yakubu. He toiled with your trust, faith and reliance on the credibility of the electoral process. He made you see a ray of hope at the end of a dark tunnel though he knew he was going to plug it as soon as elections were over. He was in league doing the bidding of his masters – the corrupt and evil old political order.”

Comrade Moses Ogidi-Paul vowed that the group would continue to protest until their demands are met.
