Presidential candidate of the Allied Congress Party of Nigeria (ACPN), Dr. Obiageli Ezekwesili, has asked the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof. Mamoud Yakubu, to reverse the recent deployment of Mrs. Amina Zakari, one of its commissioners.
Recall that Zakari, who has been identified as President Muhammadu Buhari’s relation, was announced as the chairperson of INEC’s Results Collation Centre in the February 2019 elections even though she has denied any relationship with him.
However, Ezekwesili, in a press statement yesterday claimed that the INEC chairman appears to have bowed to “pressure” from the Presidency.
She described Zakari’s appointment as political corruption, considering that having a “relation” of the President who is a contestant in the February 2019 presidential election amounts to an apparent Conflict-of-Interest situation.
She said that such deployment of Zakari to the collation centres suggests a brazen attempt to ease rigging for the APC’s candidate in the elections.
To ensure peace and give all the candidates a level playing ground, the ACPN presidential candidate asked INEC to restore confidence in the management of the collation process by reversing the appointment of Zakari as chairperson.
