PDP REQUEST RESIGNATION OF INEC CHAIRMAN


The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), on Tuesday demanded the immediate resignation of the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof. Mahmood Yakubu.
The party said the call became imperative following his alleged role in the ‘fraudulent manipulations’ that characterized the September 22, 2018, Osun State Governorship election.

The PDP also called for the resignation of Mrs. Amina Zakari, the INEC National Commissioner, Supervising Electoral Operations, who is also in charge of Information Communication Technology (ICT) Department.
A statement by PDP’s Spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan said, “With INEC’s fraudulent conduct in the Osun Governorship election, and approval that a concluded election be declared inconclusive, the PDP and indeed all well-meaning Nigerians no longer have confidence in Prof. Yakubu.

“It is completely inexcusable that Prof. Yakubu presides over an atrocious and compromised electoral umpire that manipulates electoral processes, doctors’ figures, allocates fictitious votes and subverts the will of the people in an election.

“PDP has additional documentary evidence of how this compromised INEC, through its Operations and ICT Department, doctored results from polling centers, directly shortchanged the PDP with no fewer than 4,387 votes by slashing votes cast for the PDP at the polling centers while allocating fictitious figures to the APC.
