Legit.ng gathers that the presidential candidate said he was disappointed at the result of the 2019 polls.
He said: “I know for a fact that our votes were stolen, our votes were diverted, our votes were suppressed. For this reason, the numbers attributed to the YPP for example as the final count was a joke.”
Moghalu said the final result which saw President Muhammadu Buhari gaining a second term in office, was a clear testament that “Nigerians have made a choice with the status quo.”
When asked if he was rigged out of the election, Moghalu stressed: “I am not claiming that I won the election and was rigged out. I want to be very clear.”
The former CBN deputy governor, however, called for “fundamental reform” of the nation’s electoral system; urging the country to work hard to deepen her democratic process ahead of the 2023 polls.
Recall that Legit.ng previously reported that Kingsley Moghalu claimed that his party’s votes were stolen during the February 23 election.
Moghalu said he had credible indications of fraud in the presidential election in which he polled 21,886 votes.
Going further, he dismissed the figure but said he would not challenge the result of the election at the tribunal.
