INEC Finally Addresses Issue Of Amina Zakari And Buhari Ahead Of Presidential Elections

Despite the raging criticism trailing the appointment of a national commissioner in the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Mrs. Amina Zakari, as head of the body’s committee to coordinate the collation of presidential election results next month, the commission yesterday insisted that she would not be replaced.

Mr. Rotimi Oyekanmi, Chief Press Secretary (CPS) to INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, also told The Guardian: “Mrs. Amina Zakari’s choice as the chair of the ad hoc Committee on National Collation Centre will not affect the credibility of the 2019 general elections and the integrity of the Commission in any way.
“First, the Commission has conducted 195 re-run, bye and end-of-tenure elections that have produced clear winners since 2015. Nobody has accused the Commission of rigging any of those elections. In fact, some of these elections were won by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). Besides, litigations on election results have reduced drastically since 2015.

“Secondly, INEC has deepened the involvement of stakeholders in the electoral process by involving them in all policies put in place to strengthen and improve the electoral system. This has engendered trust and confidence.

“I think it will be inaccurate to take the false allegations being peddled against the Commission as the general consensus. From the information available to us, Nigerians have confidence in our ability to conduct free, fair and credible general elections in 2019.”
