The petition started on Thursday morning, March 2, and has gathered 316,071 signatures as of the time of writing this report.

The initiator of this petition, who was identified as Osusu said:

“I started this petition because Mahmood refused to do the will of the people. He rigged the election for APC against the will of the Nigerian voters.

“I am so very excited to see like minded people. So grateful guys. Let’s keep sharing.”
