2023 Presidency: Tinubu, Shettima To Receive Certificate Of Return On Wednesday

Following his victory in the 2023 presidential election, it has been revealed that Bola Tinubu and his running mate Kashim Shettima will be given the certificate of return on Wednesday.

The former Lagos governor emerged as the president-elect in the early hours of Wednesday after the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) disclosed that he got 8,794,726 votes to win the polls.

Announcing Tinubu as the winner, INEC Chairman Mahmood Yakubu stated that the former satisfied the requirements of the law.

“That Tinubu Bola Ahmed of the APC, having satisfied the requirements of the law is hereby declared the winner and returned elected”, Yakubu said.

Speaking further, Yakubu revealed that INEC would present the certificate of return to Tinubu and Shettima at the International Collation Centre in Abuja.

According to him, the move would give the commission enough time to plan for the gubernatorial election scheduled for March 11.

Yakubu said that senators and House of Representatives members-elect would have to wait a bit and added that a statement would be issued later today on when the ceremony for senators and House of Representatives members-elect would take place.
