Sowore Tells Amina Zakari To 'do The Rightng And Resign' Her INEC Appointment by ItzBIM(m): 11:02am On Jan 08
Omoyele Sowore, the presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC), has called on Amina Zakari, the embattled National Commissioner of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), to resign from her position.

Sowore stated this on Monday in Abuja during the INEC quarterly consultative meeting with political parties.

There had been speculations on the relationship between the Oresident and Zakari, with the presidency issuing a statement that the duo aren't related by blood but for an inter-marriage between their families.

Zakari had also said Buhari is neither her cousin nor her uncle as claimed.

Sowore has, however, said Zakari's sense of judgement in the line of duty would be compromised, no matter the nature of her relationship with President Muhammadu Buhari.

"It is not about the blood relationship. If there is any form of relationship at all, that could influence her sense of judgement. I expected her to do the right thing by stepping aside. It doesn't have to be blood relationship. There are people who don't have blood relationship in this world that are closer than people with blood relationship," he said.

Maintaining that there is enough evidence to prove that Zakari would be biased in the discharge of her duties, Sowore advised her to follow the path of honour and resign from the position.

He said people are not comfortable with her decision to remain in her position in the commission; he also urged the commission to reverse the decision.

On the draft guidelines, he stressed that all political parties must be included in drawing up the guidelines for the regulation of the conduct of the elections.

Speaking at the event, Professor Mahmood Yakubu, the INEC Chairman, explained that where the biometric authentication fails, the voter will be required to thumbprint a box next to his/her picture on the register and would be made to enter his/her mobile telephone number before proceeding to vote.

"The commission has modified the register of voters for the 2019 general election accordingly," Yakubu stated. "Consequently, the separate incident form used in previous elections which is only completed by the presiding officer without the involvement of the voter, is now abolished. Similarly the claim that the card reader has been enhanced ro recapture voters' fingerprints at polling units and automatically overwrite the biometric record on our database is untrue and should be disregarded."

If this Buhari regime has any iota of integrity left, which is highly doubtful, the lady must resign or de dismissed without delay. How can the results of a supposed free and fair election be proclaimed by a relative of the incumbent president and canditate? Who can take this joke seriously?

Is it really possible that the lady proclaims any other person winner but her Uncle Buhari? Is this a Banana Republic? Buhari is taking nigerians for fools. He may be right tho undecided

wink majority of people in opposition are actually stupid... instead of bullying her why not give us the section of the constitution she violated, or evidence of her breach of contract and integrity.

This morons also called for the sack of atihiru jega and the suspension of card reader prior to 2015 election through sponsored protests

If after 20 years of democracy this buffoons still don't know that upon nomination by PDP president and confirmation by a multi party legislator INEC has independent constitueted authority to apoint or hire adhoc commitee heads, then its a shame

Amina is just a woman and INEC is a nationwide instituition, if they are 100% certain of misconduct by INEC or its staffs let them aproach a court of competent jurisdiction, rather than media blackmail, slander or noisemaking, afterall she was with INEC 2011 when buhari lost

I agree with him.... I believe that justice must not just be done but must be seen as done. She is already controversial and and result emanating from her in the course of this election will be treated with sentiments so it's better for her to refuse the appointment
