Amina Zakari’s Family Speaks On Ties To Buhari’s Sister - The Cable by frankfrank(m): 3:56am On Jan 08
he family of Amina Zakari, a national commissioner at the Independent National Electoral Commision (INEC), has explained its ties to President Muhammadu Buhari.

The appointment of Zakari as head of INEC’s collation centre in the forthcoming general election has generated controversy.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had alleged that she is related to the president and her position would compromise the electoral process.

In a statement by Isah Zakari, the family described the rumours as “blatant lies and a campaign of calumny orchestrated to pull her down”.

It said contrary to widespread belief, Zakari is not a blood relation of the president.

“We ordinarily will not join issues with any political party, newspaper or media organization because we will not want to constitute an impediment to the discharge of their constitutionally guaranteed responsibilities. It is, therefore, a very tough decision to react to the blatant lies told against our mother, daughter and sister, Mrs. Amina Zakari,” the statement read.

“We have taken this decision in firm belief that this clarification will put to rest the ceaseless campaign of calumny orchestrated to pull her down.

“Amina Zakari is a patriotic Nigeria who has served her country faithfully and honestly for years without blemish. We are therefore pained by the report that portrays Amina Zakari working to sabotage INEC’s firm determination to advance the democratic journey by creating a conducive atmosphere for citizens to exercise their voting rights.

“Contrary to the widespread belief, Amina Zakari is not a blood relation of President Muhammadu Buhari. Her mother was from Daura (born and bred in Kano) and she was not Buhari’s sister. It’s also true that Buhari’s sister was once married into the family. The union was short lived and did not produce a child. This all happened well before Mrs. Zakari was born.

“Furthermore, Alhaji Tanko Yakasai, the veteran Kano politician who first made the claim that she was born by Buhari’s sister has since recanted. Those who have held on to the claim are therefore either unaware of his recantation or they are simply incapable of letting go their prejudices in the face of facts to the contrary.

“It is laughable that Mrs. Zakari who was appointed National Commissioner by former President Goodluck Jonathan under a PDP government can no longer perform any function in INEC because she is a supposed relation of President Muhammadu Buhari.

“The pieces of information being sold to the press about Mrs. Amina Zakari by the PDP are absolutely false, tendentious, malicious and highly reprehensible.”

The family said instead of celebrating Zakari as an election expert, her accomplishments are being reduced to “mere family ties”.

“She has now served under 3 different President’s in various capacities and has served her nation in a forthright and honest manner with the utmost humility and much sacrifice,” the statement read.

“She is one of the most accomplished election experts in Nigeria with 2 elections under her belt (2011,2015).

“What is unfortunate is instead of celebrating an accomplished woman to support diversity in our polity and groom our future female leaders, we are stuck on belittling Mrs. Zakari’s accomplishments to mere familial ties. If we begin to harangue and harass our officials for family ties (which they do not control) over competence we shall have no one to serve.

“Enough is enough leave our mother, daughter, sister alone to serve the nation as she has done so diligently over her life and career.”

And she will head it, our country is not going to be engulfed by fire, probably you guys will set your own house on fire and Not Nigeria.
You people should free the woman, on 2015 you guys tagged her Buharis sister, come 2018 you guys called her niece, later in same 2018 you guys called her distant niece and now 2019 you guys are calling her inlaw. Can't you see that you people are confused, you people are just looking for what to hold on when the game is over.
I will urge you people to brace up and face your campaign, channel all your energy on why Nigerians should vote for you.

Must it be AMINA ZAKARI?... does Inec not have other staff?

The more they are insisting it must be Amina raises a lot of concern itself.

They are already rigging the election.

Soon, INEC Chairman will be replaced with Jubril's brother, and they will claim that the election will be free and fair.

The mother was from Daura.

Buhari's sister once married into the family.

Yet they are denying relationship.

Maybe until Buhari is f*cking her cunt in Aso Rock bed, that's when they will agree there's relationship.

I've told myself not to make much noise about these things since Amaechi has confirmed that Buhari's Ear problem is still very much there.

Whatever is happening in 2019 elections, let it happen.

God knows I won't be the worst off.

She doesn’t have to think, the whole world knows you’re FOOLS.

A set of people that can believe a Jubril from Sudan is ruling us and is related to a certain Amina from jigawa are not only foolish but Mentally unstable.

If I'm from Ekiti, and my aunt marries an Igbo man from Abia, I guess her children will not be my cousins because we are indigenes of different states?

I ask again, is stupidity, daftness and crass stupidity, the prerequisite into BMC?

Be it Sister, Niece, aunt or whatever, I know there is Link between the PMB and Amina Zakari, so if she is not stepping down and everyday people are giving press statement to justify her appointment, God is Greater than them all, they will all be disgraced.

What else is needed to be known? The family just agreed that Amina's mother is from Daura (where buhari comes from) and also that Buhari sister is married into the Zakari family, even if that was a long time ago before Amina was born it doesn't change anything. They are related. In they are in-laws and also her mother is from Daura. They are family period.

Exactly on point. There is still Buharis's sister that once married into that family.So why still deny the fact that someone from Buhari's family once married to her family even if it was just an hour marriage. There are so many marriages that never produced any child but the record still remains that they married.

With the way APC is taking the matter, goes to show that they want to rig the election. In all official positions Buhari held as a public servant, he has given two of these individuals work.
