INEC Chairman Trows Jibs At Accusers Over Bribing

INEC Boss, Yakubu Under Fire for ‘Endangering Democracy
As mixed reactions continue to trail the postponement of the 2019 general elections by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), political stakeholders have chided the electoral umpire over the unfortunate drama.

They warned INEC that the collective wishes of Nigerian people in electing their leaders should not be withdrawn. 

Recall that the INEC Chairman, Professor Mahmood Yakubu, while addressing reporters on Saturday morning at the press centre of the commission’s headquarters in Abuja, said that the polls would not go on as planned due to some challenges which was encountered by the independent commission.

He explained that the decision to postpone the polls was due to a careful review of the implementation of the logistics and operational plans which was supposed to be put in place for the exercise.

Reacting to the development, in a chat with news men on Monday evening, the Senior Special Adviser to the Abia State Governor on E-governance, Mr. Obed Nnaji Asiegbu, claimed that the postponement, was a well designed conspiracy orchestrated by INEC and the governing All Progressives Congress (APC) to rig the polls.

According to Asiegbu, the action of the electoral body portend a great danger to the sustenance of democracy in Nigeria

He said:-
“Postponement of the election is awful and wicked. 
Inec and APC are working against the people by planning to frustrate and disenfranchise voters. 
Electoral Materials were purposefully not sent to some States to create situational issues.

“INEC Chairman on several occasions assured the World of INEC readiness and people traveled from far and near just to caste their votes and only to be faced with a ploy to disenfranchise them, what a shameful thought by the APC led Government of Nigeria and the INEC.
This is dangerous for the democracy”.
