Your Assurances On Credible Election Worthless, Unconvincing – Atiku Fires INEC Chairman

 The People's Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar criticized the Chairman of the Independent National Election Commission (INEC), Professor Mahmood Yakubu, for promising to hold credible gubernatorial elections. Yakubu said he would ensure that INEC employees found guilty of negligence in the presidential election would not be allowed to participate in the March 11 vote. Yakubu, in a meeting with resident election commissioners, promised to ensure the strict use of the "BVAS" dual-mode voter recognition system.

"All employees found guilty of negligence, whether regular or ad hoc, including collaborators and supervisors, are barred from participating in upcoming elections." "RECs must also immediately initiate disciplinary action when there is clear evidence of misconduct," the INEC boss said on Saturday.

In a statement on Sunday, Atiku's special assistant for public communications, Phrank Shaibu, described Yakubu's assurances as worthless and unconvincing.

Shaibu added that the INEC president was just trying to save face after holding the worst election Nigeria has seen since independence. He asked Yakubu to stop trying to deceive Nigerians following INEC's chaotic performance in the February 25 poll.

Atiku's aide also praised the US Ambassador to Nigeria, Mary Beth Leonard, for acknowledging that the election did not live up to the expectations of the Nigerian people. Shaibu said, "The president of INEC is nothing but a hypocrite. After promising to upload the results of the polling stations in real time, he allowed himself to be taken advantage of, or he used himself to subvert the will of the Nigerian people. You will be shocked to learn that seven days after the election is over, the full results have not yet been uploaded to the INEC results portal.

"The election was so bad that it failed to meet the expectations of the Nigerian people, as has been reaffirmed by some foreign media and observers as well as US Ambassador Mary Beth Leonard. After apologizing, the president of INEC again sought to blame. " Following INEC's poor performance in the February 25 rigged election, INEC is now trying to save face, emphasizing that errant employees will be punished and not deployed in the February 25 vote. March 11. This is complete nonsense. Does INEC plan to train new personnel within five days to replace the so-called vagrants? Will it recruit new personnel or deploy from space?
