INEC: PDP Faults Amina Zakari’s Appointment, Says No Way Votes Will Count by bayomillz14: 7:05am On Jan 04, 2019
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has condemned the appointment of Mrs Amina Zakari by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) as Chairman of the Collation Centre Committee for 2019 general elections.

The party made the call at a news conference addressed by the Director, Media and Publicity, PDP Presidential Campaign Organisation (PPCO), Mr Kola Ologbondiyan, on Thursday in Abuja.

Ologbondiyan urged INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, to immediately reverse the appointment of Zakari, who he described as President Muhammadu Buhari’s blood relation, as the head of the centre for collation of results.

He said that the PPCO outrightly and unequivocally rejected the appointment of Zakari for such position in the same election in which President Buhari is a candidate.

“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 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,’’ he said.
