PDP Tells Yakubu What To Do After Reappointment As INEC Chairman

PDP Tells Yakubu What To Do After Reappointment As INEC Chairman (Updated: 2 years ago)


The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Nigeria’s main opposition party, has challenged Professor Mahmood Yakubu, the chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), to spend nearly three years ahead of the next general election to rejig the commission.

We had reported earlier that President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday, October 27, reappointed Yakubu as the Chairman of INEC for another five years.

Reacting to the appointment in a statement issued on Wednesday by Kola Ologbondiyan, its spokesman, the PDP said the reappointment has entrusted Yakubu with fate, hope, and future of over 200 million Nigerians, as well as those of generations yet unborn.

PDP urged Yakubut towork out appropriate electoral policies and guidelines and to push for the amendment of the Electoral Act, in conjunction with the National Assembly, with a view to giving the nation a credible electoral process.

The main opposition party while urging the INEC Chairman to be mindful of the aphorism that to whom much is given, much more is expected, said the reappointment comes with a lot of expectations from Nigerians.

“He must quickly take a painstaking look into issues that aid manipulations, rigging, violence and inconclusive elections which marred most of the exercises conducted in his previous tenure.

“Prof. Yakubu should note that the future, stability, and corporate existence of our nation have been entrusted in his hands as a credible election is the bedrock of any democratic society”, it added.
