The reason Shittu called for Oshiomhole’s resignation was because of an earlier call by the former Edo State Governor for the removal of Mahmood Yakubu, as the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC). He stressed that the removal of Yakubu, due to INEC’s postponement of the general elections, may cause more havoc to the Commission.
“When Oshiomhole supervised that party’s primary elections, which can be described as most horrible and corrupt in the history of the party, who called for his resignation? I will not support such call for resignation of the INEC Chairman. To err is human.
“This is the first election that Professor Yakubu would be conducting; so, we need to give him the benefit of doubt, and I will advise that all the political parties should be vigilant.
If you bring in another Chairman, when does such person begin to learn the process? Or will you on the basis of that, call for another rescheduling of the elections? Certainly, it is unacceptable for anyone to ask for the resignation of INEC Chairman.” SHARE THIS STORY USING ANY OF THE BUTTON BELOW ⬇ PLACE YOUR TEXT ADVERT BELOW ⬇⬇⬇
