Okechukwu Ibeanu, Not Amina Zakari Is Chairman INEC Logistics Committee by phyllosilicate(m): 9:15pm On Feb 16
After INEC shifted the election, social media was awash with a screenshot depicting Zakari as INE's head of logistics, with the insinuation that she probably sabotaged the election to hand an advantage to the All Progressives Congress (APC). However, this is not true.

Sequel to the one-week postponement of the elections by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), there have been speculations that Amina Zakari, a national commissioner, is to blame for the logistics delay regarding the electoral process.

Professor Mahmood Yakubu, the INEC Chairman, had said bad weather and delay in logistics was one of the reasons the polls had to be shifted by one week.

Before the elections, various stakeholders, especially the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), had accused the commission of plans to rig the election by putting Zakari in charge of its national collation centre.

Zakari is related to President Muhammadu Buhari, albeit a distant relative. However, there had been calls for her sack from the commission, as there were claims that she could be biased as Buhari is seeking reelection on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

After INEC shifted the election, social media was awash with a screenshot depicting Zakari as INE's head of logistics, with the insinuation that she probably sabotaged the election to hand an advantage to the All Progressives Congress (APC). However, this is not true.

In 1997, she was appointed as a National Commissioner of INEC.

However, she was eventually redeployed, and contrary to speculations that she should receive major blame for the postponement of the elections, her office actually has nothing to do with logistics.

In October 2018, INEC re-organised the chairmanship of five of its 15 Standing Committees. As a result, Amina Bala Zakari’s position as Chairman of INEC’s Electoral Operations and Logistics Committee was changed to Health and Welfare Committee.

A statement by Mallam Muhammed Haruna, a National Commissioner on the re-organisation, read: “Barrister Festus Okoye, Information and Voter Education Committee; Prince Solomon Adedeji Soyebi, Board of the Electoral Institute; Dr Mohammed Mustafa Lecky, Planning, Monitoring and Strategy Committee; Mrs. Amina Bala Zakari, Health and Welfare Committee, and Professor Okechukwu Ibeanu, Electoral Operations and Logistics Committee.”

In January 2019, she was appointed Chairman of the Committee on Collation Centre. Therefore, Zakari is NOT the head of INEC's losgistics as being peddled n social media.

This is not what wailers and Ipobs wanted to hear oh. They certainly hoped to hear that Amina Zakari is responsible for the logistics issues so they can transfer their insults from Buhari and APC to the innocent woman.
Emotional and irrational political beings.

Next Saturday no far sha. The majority of Nigerians would teach Container Economy people that election is a game of numbers, not who insults the most.

He should be fired with immediate effect and he should lose his pension as well. This is a disgrace, they are treating a whole election of over 100 million eligible voters as if its a village meeting. He should be fired, locked up for 5 years and then forced to wash police station toilets for another 2 years. Zero tolerance for mediocrity.

If there is so much noise about postponement what will happen if the announcement is made after election that APC or PDP has won?

APC will protest if its PDP and PDP will protest if its APC!

People are waiting to cry foulplay once their party is not announced as winner. I just hope this is not the case.

Inec website says different thing, need to verify though, meanwhile, is ngeneukwu not a Southerner? Whatever the case is, APC hand is written all over it. All Easterners are not supporting Atiku and vice versa for all other candidates.

Ok, Saturday should please come fast.

Nigeria is a MKT place that both the bad and evil people go to buy from.

We either live to regret or be proud of the choice we will make the coming weekend.

No one should cry for God's blessings when our choice loaded it away. God himself will be angry when you cried.

But today reality is dawn on us, that it is not GEJ who lost but we the citizens...

Or maybe Muslims?

Maybe Women?
