Amina Zakara: EU Rejects Pdp's Plea To Influence INEC by 12Ebisco: 10:47am On Jan 12
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), on Friday, called on the European Union to prevail on members of the security agencies to remain apolitical during the conduct of the forthcoming general elections.

The PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, made the call when the party received Mrs Hannah Roberts, Deputy Chief Observer, European Union Election Observation Mission Nigeria 2019, at the Wadata Plaza, on Friday in Abuja.

Ologbondiyan expressed concern over the way and manner members of the security agencies seemed to have abdicated their statutory responsibilities during conduct of recent elections in some states of the federation.

He said that the PDP believed that election should be free and fair.

“PDP as a party does not believe in violence, but would like presidency and INEC to conduct free and fair election, outside of this, we will not agree.”

Ologbondiyan also expressed concern over Independent National Electoral Commission’s (INEC) sincerity to conduct credible elections, especially where Mrs Amina Zakari, INEC’s National Commissioner, would play key role in the said election.

The PDP national spokesperson noted that it was not only PDP that was averse to this arrangement.

He said that other political parties had also expressed reservations on the seeming partisan role of security agencies and that of Zakari in the forthcoming coming elections.

“Zakari should not be found anywhere near the process. We have made our position known to INEC because there will be a direct conflict of interest.”

Speaking earlier, Roberts said that they were in Nigeria ahead of the election to have discussions with electoral stakeholders.

She said that the mission would have discussion with range of stakeholders including the political parties and candidates , saying “we have to first meet variety of people.

“We have observers as we have in the past, spread around the country, so that they can see the reality on ground.

“The Chief observer will be becoming to observe the election; we have contact with key persons in the party; we hope you will make yourself available, so that we can know what is going on.

“As you know, we are invited into the country by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), we can’t control anything.

“Our mandate is to observe and make recommendations and issue statements, particularly after the election and finally make recommendations after the election, in other to make future election better,” Roberts said.

Nairaland mods have become completely partisan.

You hurriedly modified it to suit your partisan motives and moved

The PDP should do their underground work and forget abt the EU, the main focus for the so called EU is their interest, any other thing is our own concern. My advise to the PDP is this; the elections is not a do or die affair, take it as it comes, but if Tyranny is sent home, Nigeria will be a better place, so, do whatever is in your power for the greater good.

Wrong heading

"We cannot" is not the same as "We reject"

Why not just report the news. Why try to shape narratives?

If not for anything, am happy PDP is going through all these and they are crying. They neglected the masses and boasted they will rule this country for double score and a decade forgetting that power belong to God. Let them cry very well, we are already having a fill.

The post title is misleading.

How could EU have influenced INEC?

According to what is written here, what was asked from all indication was that the EU should 'prevail' on INEC which is synonymous to persuading the agency to stay apolitical.

It would be ridiculous for anyone to ask EU to influence INEC.

Boggles the mind why we're the only country actively seeking to mortgage our sovereignty, with the way politicians bombard the US, EU, UK, and the UN with letters asking them to interfare with our electoral process.

Our obsession with oyinbo is disturbing
