INEC Opens Up On Being Under Pressure To Rig Elections

The Independent National Electoral Commission has said it is not under pressure to rig the forthcoming elections.

The commission also gave assurance that its cooperation with security agencies would lead to a pleasant voting experience for Nigerians.

The INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, said this in Abuja on Monday during a visit to the acting Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu.

He was reacting to the allegations by former President Olusegun Obasanjo that INEC would not be transparent in the forthcoming elections.

Yakubu said, “This is to be expected in an election year when people make all sorts of insinuations but I want to tell you that we, as a commission, have never been under any pressure to do what is wrong.

“We will never compromise our integrity to do what the law says that we shouldn’t and for the 2019 general elections.”

He said the commission would collaborate with the police for the protection of the electoral process such that votes would count in the polls.

The acting IG said the Force had identified some flashpoints, adding that it might commence the arrest of those who appear to pose a threat to credible elections.
