Nigerian Opposition Rejects Results Of National Assembly Polls - 2003-04-15


Nigeria's political opposition has rejected the results of Saturday's parliamentary elections in which the ruling party of President Olusegun Obasanjo appears headed for a strong victory. The chairman of the All Nigeria People's Party -- Don Etiebet -- said Tuesday the opposition has decided to completely reject the results after a meeting of 28 political parties. The chairman said the opposition has asked Nigeria's electoral commission to remedy the situation.

Chuks Osuji is with Nigeria’s Opinion Research and Communications Consultants Limited. English to Africa reporter Josephine Kamara asked Dr. Osuji about the outcome of the counts so far. He says as far as the present outcome is concerned, there is evidence of a need for change in some Nigerian States.
