As a result of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declaring the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Bola Tinubu, as the winner of the presidential election held on February 25th, he was subsequently inaugurated as president on May 29.

However, the victory of President Tinubu is currently being challenged in court by Peter Obi and his party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), among others.

In a surprising post shared on Twitter, Charly Boy boldly pledged to walk naked on the streets from Bourdillon to Falomo if Peter Obi’s appeal is successful and he emerges victorious at the tribunal.

It is evident that Charly Boy is passionately expressing his support for the opposition candidate in a rather unconventional manner.

Peter Obi and the Labour Party Accuse INEC of Electoral Fraud:

Meanwhile, Peter Obi and the Labour Party have made serious accusations against the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

In their final statement submitted to the Presidential Election Petitions Court on July 23, 2023, they claimed that INEC is turning a blind eye to electoral fraud, leading to the wastage of the country’s resources.

According to Obi and the Labour Party, INEC has failed in its primary duty of conducting elections fairly and independently, instead allegedly showing favoritism towards certain candidates during the elections.

They expressed concerns that if the court does not hold INEC accountable for its actions, future elections in Nigeria may continue to be tainted by unfair practices.

A Pointed Critique of INEC’s Conduct:

In their statement to the court, Peter Obi and the Labour Party specifically criticized INEC for dedicating a significant portion of its address to defending the qualifications of the second respondent, Bola Tinubu.

This critique implies that INEC’s focus should have been on ensuring free and fair elections rather than diverting attention to the qualifications of individual candidates.

Conclusion:

Charly Boy’s unusual vow to walk naked on the streets if Peter Obi wins at the election tribunal has grabbed attention and sparked discussions.

While his expression of support for the opposition candidate is unconventional, it reflects the intense passion and emotions surrounding the election process in Nigeria.

Simultaneously, Peter Obi and the Labour Party’s accusations against INEC raise important concerns about the fairness and transparency of the electoral system in the country.
