2019: PDP Reacts As INEC Names Buhari’s Niece, Amina Zakari Official To Announce by 2Ebisco: 9:52pm On Jan 03, 2019
The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, on Thursday reacted as the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, appointed President Muhammadu Buhari’s niece, Amina Zakari as its head of Collation Center for the 2019 elections.

By her new appointment, Zakari, who was once the Commission’s Director of Operations, will be responsible for announcing the result of the presidential election.

Reacting to her appointment, PDP reiterated its recent claim that President Muhammadu Buhari was determined to rig himself back into power, hence the appointment of Zakari.

In a press statement issued by its spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan, the former ruling party said: “We have called you up again today to alert Nigerians of another heinous machination by the Buhari Presidency and
the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to subvert the will of the people and rig the February 16, Presidential election.

“You will recall that we have been raising the flag on how the Buhari Presidency, the All Progressives Congress (APC) and some individuals at the echelon of INEC have been seeking ways to compromise our electoral
processes and open the way for the allocation of fictitious votes to President Muhammadu Buhari, having realized that he cannot win in a credible, free and fair polls.

“Today, we have been informed that the Chairman of INEC, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, apparently in furtherance of the plots to rig the Presidential election, has appointed Mrs. Amina Zakari, a blood relation (niece) of
the APC candidate, President Muhammadu Buhari, as the Chairperson of INEC Advisory Committee and Presidential election Collation Center
Committee.

“The Peoples Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Organization (PPCO) outrightly, vehemently and unequivocally rejects, in its entirety, the
appointment of Mrs. Amina Zakari, President Buhari’s blood relation, as the head of the collation of results, in the same election in which his
uncle, President Buhari, as a candidate, has displayed a huge desperation to win.

“The appointment of Mrs. Amina Zakari, who had been openly accused in various quarters as being the link person between INEC and the Buhari
Presidency in their schemes to rig the election for President Buhari, constitutes a direct violence against the Presidential election and the PDP will not, in any way, whatsoever, accept it.

“This is the same Amina Zakari, who headed the ICT Department of INEC at the time that department was accused of manipulating the INEC voter register to accommodate fictitious, underage and alien voters,
particularly, in remote areas where they plan to allocate and announce conjured votes for President Buhari and the APC.

“It will interest Nigerians to note that this is the same Amina Zakari that was alleged to have played some roles in the 2018 governorship election in Osun state, where the electoral processes were flagrantly
abused.

“In appointing Mrs. Amina Zakari to head the collation of this Presidential election, Prof. Yakubu has confirmed that he has been compromised and that he has already succumbed to pressure by the Buhari Presidency and APC to open the way for the self-succession of President
Buhari.

“The fact remains that there is no way Amina Zakari will not allocate votes to her blood relation, President Buhari, whom Nigerians have indicated clearly that they are not ready to return to office as President.

“With Amina Zakari at the head of results collation, there is no way votes cast by Nigerians will count.

“We, therefore, call on all Nigerians and particularly the National Peace Committee to note that with the appointment of Amina Zakari, as head the
collation of Presidential results, the INEC Chairman is setting the stage for a very huge political crisis, which is capable of derailing our democratic process.

“We also urge the United Nations and other global democratic institutions to take copious note of this noxious appointment by the INEC Chairman.

“If the INEC Chairman wants a peaceful Presidential election, he should, with the speed of light, reverse himself on this appointment.

“In fact, the PPCO reiterates its position that for us to have a peaceful election, Mrs. Amina Zakari should not be seen anywhere near any of the 2019 election processes, not to talk of being involved in the collation
of Presidential results.”

PDP, however, assured that it remained “committed to a peaceful and credible process, but we will never, in any way, allow anybody to use any means, under any guise
whatsoever, to rig us out in this election. Not after it is clear that Nigerians have attained a consensus to rally behind our Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, as their next President.

“All we ask for is a free, fair, credible and transparent electoral process in which the votes of Nigerians will not only count but will be seen to have counted.

“Like Mr. President said during his 2019 budget presentation at the National Assembly, the world is watching us,” the statement added.

I thought you said the man in power is Jubrin from Sudan, so how is Amina Zakari related to Jubrin from Sudan. Is she also from Sudan? It is either you people don't know what is wrong with your brain or your brain does not know what is wrong with you. Today he is Buhari, tomorrow he will be Jubrin. Any way, I still don't believe both are related until you prove to me that the man sitting as the president is Buhari and not Jubrin as you have claimed. If not, I see no reason why you people should be shouting. After all, the man is Jubrin as claimed by you. You need to first prove to me he is Buhari, then I will know what to say. Confused mind with confused brain.

No! But Please let's be reasonable! There's already so much making rounds about how PMB plans to rig the elections, this only raises more dust. Well, it's his Nigeria now! Thank God I finally got my passport on Wednesday.

Buhari has no intention of relinquishing power! Even if he loses, he will not step down! We are in hot soup oo...

This man is flagrantly undemocratic and does not believe that power belongs to the people. He belongs to the old Northern hegemony that believes that power belongs to the Northern elites and that people are just serfs. I believe that if you give him a pen and a paper, buhari cannot define democracy.

Imagine the audacity and contempt and disrespect and desperation it will take for a president to appoint his blood niece in such a sensitive and decisive post of an electoral commission. Try in in Europe or America and the country will BURN!! As the president is a Northerner, the INEC chairman all sensitive posts should come FROM THE SOUTH!! Buhari is shameless!
