In a statement, the businessman blamed the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for its “chaotic operations” that gave room for a lot of electoral irregularities.

Kingsley Moghalu also slammed the election which he says was marred by vote-buying.

Some were discouraged by the failure of the new generation alternatives to produce a consensus candidate in a coalition. That’s a lame excuse. Coalitions are not formed by force or at gunpoint. Only candidates truly willing to form a coalition (which is very different from “forming” the desire for one) can do so.

Behaving as if anyone owed them a coalition or consensus candidate was therefore a cop-out from having to make an informed democratic choice. They should instead have voted for the “youth” candidate of their choice.”

“From several states around the country we received credible reports that votes cast for the Young Progressives Party (YPP), my party platform for the 2019 elections, were being diverted,” he claimed.

In running (to win, not that “I also ran”) for president I took a bold, calculated risk, sacrificing safety, personal resources and income streams, and quality family life because I was fed up with the failure of governance and economic management in our country.

“Rising poverty, unemployment and instability remain our agonizing reality. Personal success is increasingly meaningless in such an existential mess,” he concluded.
