This was coming hours after the PDP leadership led by Sen. Iyorchia Ayu, and other party chieftains stormed the headquarters of INEC to protest the declaration of the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, as the president-elect after the February 25, 2023 elections.
The PDP, Labour Party, and the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) had rejected the election results describing the election as being marred by violence, rigging, lacking integrity by the non-uploading of the presidential results on the IRev portal in real time on the election day thereby calling for its cancellation among others.
The PDP had also lamented what it described as the irregularities recorded during the conduct of the elections.

The fiery former senator further remarked that “to make sure that the mandate of the people given freely to Atiku Abubakar is retrieved, we spent over N400 billion just for a caricature show. INEC deceived Nigerians.”
On the Naira redesign policy , Sen. Melaye alleged that “because money was given to Bola Tinubu, the APC shared new notes on election day across the country and the PDP was starved of funds. Naira redesign was a ploy by INEC to deceive Nigerians.”
He also called on all PDP supporters, lovers of democracy all over the country not to allow this to stand.
