Election denier Stacey Abrams serves as Nigeria’s election monitor
Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams (D), who rejected the results of the US election, is serving in Nigeria as an international observer of the country’s presidential election.
Abrams is known for denying the outcome of his 2018 loss to Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R), which he now denies he ever said, despite video evidence that he repeatedly questioned him to take back his loss.
As Breitbart News elaborates:
Abrams’ collection of statements shows that the Democratic candidate regularly denies the results of the election. Abrams declared, “We won,” “I didn’t lose, we got the vote,” and “We were robbed of the election.” He also repeatedly called it a “stolen election” and said “it was not a free and fair election.”
Last night, Stacey Abrams said she “never denied the outcome” of the 2018 defeat.
But Abrams repeatedly said he “won” and that the race was “stolen.”

“We’ve seen long lines that show strong enthusiasm, but we’ve also seen a lot of cooperation and very peaceful conversation between voters,” Abrams said. said Jamjoom. “They want to be heard, and they’re willing to wait in line and be patient because they know that’s their path to progress.”
Jamjum noted Abrams’ activism for suffrage in America and asked him to talk about talking to young Nigerian voters. Abrams told Jamjum that voters in the nation’s youngest electoral bloc “want to hear.”
They believe that progress is possible. They believe there could be more. They understand that they are the most affected by unemployment, that the challenges they face are real, but so is the opportunity for change. What we tried to communicate was a reminder that not all elections go your way, but the responsibility is to show yourself and try to build the future as best you can.
Ironically, shortly after Nigeria’s National Electoral Commission declared 70-year-old Bola Tinubu the winner of the presidential election, the election overseen by Abrams was marred by allegations of fraud.
As Breitbart News reported:

Protesters outside the INEC headquarters in Abuja on Wednesday demanded fresh elections and the resignation of INEC chairman Mahmud Yakubu.
PDP and LP rejected the election results before announcing the winner. On Tuesday, representatives of the two parties – and the smaller African Democratic Congress (ADC) – held a press conference demanding the resignation of INEC chief Yakubu and the country’s new presidential election.
According to a Nigerian newspaper, the PDP and LP vice-presidential candidates held a press conference on Wednesday to reiterate the party’s opposition to the election results, calling the election a “rape against democracy”. This day.
“We would like to officially announce that last weekend’s election was rigged. It was neither free nor fair,” said PDP Vice Presidential candidate Ifeanyi Okowa. “What happened at the National Collection Center yesterday forces the National President to play according to a predetermined script. It is our position that elections and reporting of results must be conducted in accordance with electoral law and INEC guidelines.
Abrams was quickly ridiculed on social media after it was revealed that he had served as a Nigerian election observer.
