BREAKING; PDP, other aggrieved Parties call for INEC Chairman’s resignation, new election
The People’s Democratic Party [PDP] and a few other opposition parties have asked Professor Mahmood Yakubu, chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), to step down.
The Parties made the call at a press briefing in Abuja on Tuesday.
Julius Abure, Chairman of Labour Party, who spoke on their behalf, said Nigerians had lost confidence in the electoral process because of the refusal to use electronic means of transmitting results as stated by the Electoral Act.
“Section 60 sub-section 5 of the Electoral Act says that the presiding officer shall transfer the results, including total number of accredited voter and the results of the ballots in a manner as prescribed by the commission. A failure to comply with the provisions of the Electoral Act and the guidelines makes it imperative that all results recently uploaded on the IReV portal must be updated before they are announced,” he said.
