Former Nigerian senator Shehu Sani has taken to his verified Twitter account to denounce the recent wave of calls for curses to be directed at Prof. Mahmoud Yakubu, the chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), amidst the fervor surrounding the alleged rigging of the 2023 presidential election.
