BREAKING: INEC Chairman Differs With Buhari On Punishment For Ballot Box Snatche by Ecstasy154(m): 5:08pm On Feb 19
Although President Muhammadu Buhari has given the Military and the Police the power to be ruthless as ballot box snatchers because they commit the offence “at risk to their own lives”, Professor Mahmood Yakubu has expressed the belief that ballot box snatchers should be punished only in accordance with the electoral law.

Speaking in Abuja on Monday at a meeting of the national caucus of the All Progressives Congress (APC), the President had said those who influence ballot box snatching may find out it is their "last unlawful action".

"Anybody who decides to snatch ballot boxes or lead thugs to disturb, it may be that [this will be] the last unlawful action you will take," Buhari had said.

"I rarely give the military and the police [the power] to be ruthless. We are not going be blamed but we won’t rig election. I want Nigerians to be respected; let them vote whoever they want across the parties. I'm not afraid of it.

"The whole 36 states in Nigeria, I went round. I think I have got enough support across the country to look after me. So I'm going to warn anybody who thinks he has enough influence in his locality to lead a body of thugs to snatch boxes or to disturb the voting system, he will do it at the expense of his own life."

When these comments were brought to the INEC Chairman on Tuesday as he addressed the media on the preparedness of his commission for the rescheduled polls, Yakubu said: “The position of the commission is that all violators of the Electoral Act should be punished according to the provisions of the Electoral Act."

Yakubu also denied reports that Okechukwu Ibeanu, the National Commissioner of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in charge of logistics, was invited by the Department of State Services (DSS).

“No commissioner of the commission was picked up by any security agency no house of any commissioner of INEC was raided; no any commissioner of INEC has been picked by the security agency,” he said.

“The particular commissioner you are referring to, whose name was mentioned on social media, is as we speak currently in his office in the commission. Similarly, no six directors were picked up by any security agency. All decisions on the administration of the commission are taken by the commission as an independent, constitutional body. We will continue to protect and jealously guard our independence.”

Abah Kiyari is hiding behind Jubril to dish out orders that will serve their blood thirsty interests. They don't even know that they do not have the power to determine on electoral penalties just as they do not have the power to conduct elections. Born to rule bastards .

But seriously sha
Buhari directives is funny o
Snatch one ballot box and get one bullet in return
That is the new electoral act promo in town.

And the same man single handedly snatch our democracy on gun point in 1983

But wait o oooo

How about the smart card readers that have been programmed to start at exactly 8am on election day. What about its communication with the head quarter after its successful verification and authentication

The ballot papers issued is equal to the number of registered voters at that polling unit or voting point. The number of verified voters must equal to the number of ballot papers used

The card reader will send record of accreditation and authentication to the server once close-v button is pressed.

If you like thumb print three hundred million ballot papers. Or steal ballot box It will not count and that polling unit will be cancelled

Anyway ! what do I know
am just talking as an Apo 2 i was shortlisted for in Benin city



Make i go drink beer dey wait for their training allowance joor
Our next president must be alhaji atiku aguero abubakar

You people don't really get it..What PMB just did was to warn his cohorts recruited to snatch ballot boxes that if you're caught, you're on your own as such person won't be given the opportunity to name their "oga"

I bet they are regretting the postponement, had they envisaged the type of heat on them would be possible, the election would have been carried out last week.

Only a slowpoke will not differ with Buhari's unconstitutionality. Nigeria is not a jungle. INEC Chairman is following the rule of law. There is stipulated punishment for ballot box snatching which is two years imprisonment without option of fine. What Buhari said was tantamount to killing a fly with a sledgehammer. I condemn election rigging or violence in its entirety. Buhari goofed on this. He should apologize to Nigerians for this rascality.

If you have a business(nigeria) and buhari is your manager.

Everyday the business is dying.

Customers( foreign investors) are leaving.

He is eating your money quietly and secretly but he says he didn't touch 1 naira.

You gave him opportunity to employ staffs but he employed only his brothers.

Will you retain him?

Of course, a bigot, clannish, nepotic, terrorist, barbaric humanity, ethnic supremacist and morally corrupt man of Buhari kind have no place in a 21st.century civilization because all he knows and live is threat, violence, bloodshed & killings.

MY FELLOW NIGERIANS LET'S ASK OURSELVES



1) DID NIGERIA EVER IMPROVE OR MOVE FORWARD IN ANY ASPECT UNDER PDP SINCE 1999?
2) DID ANY PDP AGENDA TO MAKE NIGERIA A GREAT NATION EVER WORK FOR US SINCE 1999?
3) IS THERE ANY RECORD OF ANY SUBSTANTIAL ACHIEVEMENT OF ATHIEFKU AS VICE-PRESIDENT THAT WE CAN BE PROUD OF ?


VOTING FOR ATHIEFKU AND PDP AGAIN IS LIKE COMMITTING POLITICAL AND ECONOMIC SUICIDE

ATHIEFKU PLS LEAVE NIGERIA ALONE AND GO BACK TO CAMEROON


8 YEARS OF ATHIEFKU IN OFFICE HE SOLD OVER 100 NIGERIA ECONOMIC ASSETS AND LOOTED ALMOST HALF OF THE MONEY THATS WHY OBJ WAS NOT HAPPY WITH HIM


ATHIEFKU AND PDP AGENDAS ARE

1)TO SELLOFF OUR MAJOR ECONOMIC RESOURCES
2)PUT NAIRA ON FREE FLOW
3)GRANT AMNESTY TO CRIMINALS
4)ENSLAVE NIGERIANS TO HIS AMERICAN BOSSES
5)ENRICH HIS FRIENDS WITH NIGERIA TREASURY





OPERATION SAY NO TO PDP & CHIEF THIEF ATHIEFKU
