55 Party Chairmen Reject PDP Call For Mahmood Yakubu's Resignation by ijelovve: 5:51pm On Dec 01, 2019
There was a major crack among the country’s opposition political parties on Sunday after 55 national chairmen of political parties rejected the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) call for the resignation of the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof. Mahmood Yakubu.

The PDP had last Thursday asked the INEC chief to resign over statements allegedly credited to two INEC Commissioners; Festus Okoye and Haruna Mohammed, that the “card readers were circumvented” in elections conducted by the Commission.

The party, in a statement issued on Thursday by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, said the statements were admissions that the November 16 governorship elections in Kogi and Bayelsa, as well as the Kogi West senatorial polls, were rigged.

But the 55 party chairmen, who came together under the aegis of Forum of Chairmen of Nigeria Political Parties, disagreed with the PDP on the call and rejected the party’s position on the efficacy of the smart card reader used at the polls.

The Chairman of the forum, Chief Perry Opara, in a statement issued on Sunday on behalf of the group, insisted that the PDP’s position was not only in bad faith but did not also represent the forum.

The statement read: “It is clear to even less political minds that the smart card reader’s efficacy has been politically and judicially neutralized and it must be mentioned that this was largely done by members of the PDP who argued before the Supreme Court against its relevance in relation to the voter register.

“The Supreme Court only agreed with the arguments of the PDP and therefore neutralized the smart card reader.

“The PDP should therefore not run with the hare and hunt with the hounds. The PDP cannot be crying wolf now when it earlier celebrated the judgments which nullified the Card Readers as a victory for democracy.

“The position of the Supreme Court which for now is the law makes the voter register the final proof of the accreditation of voters. Hence, making the record of the card reader inadmissible in court as proof of accreditation.”

Most of these political parties are mushroom party. Most of them were registered for decades without even winning a councillor seat. Even the INEC Chairman they are supporting is looking for a way to withdraw their registration certificate.

PDP doesn't even need the backing of those kindergarten parties to win elections. What they need is to synthesis their party by retiring all their members that served in the former administration and nurture youths to take over the mantel of their party leadership. Then find a credible presidential candidate that'd be accepted in all the political zones.

They should distance their party from people like: Atiku, Obasanjo and GEJ with all their cronies. That's the magic the need to rejuvenate their slumbering party.

I said it.


I've always said it that APC was the one that created all those mushroom parties,

but my friends keep doubting me. They're created to distract Nigerians and deceive them.

They weren't created to win anything.

Like I said this is Nigeria. We are our own worst enemies.

I don’t care about Pdp I wud rather have a 3rd force bt has yakubu done anything good with the way the elections have been conducted? I highly doubt so from many of the outcomes, issues and events. He doesn’t seem to be in control or know what he’s doing either.

election under APC means coup d'etat

this is how APC operates.

challenge election that brought you to Senate

organized new election

use violence , yahama bello thugs, security personals and inec to rig you out

if you are very tough, women leader would be roasted and election will be declared inconclusive

then, they will rig you out with ijebu gari vote counting method


this same method will be used to return Akpabio to Senate

Did any of the zombies above read the opening thread? Just to run and comment like fowl. Pdp opposed card reader in supreme Court in wike's case. Supreme Court ruled in their favor that voters register supercedes card reader records. Now inec is relying on that judgement saying they circumvented card reader. Same pdp is condemning what they brought into existence and what handed over victory to wike in his first term. U can't celebrate when it favors you and cry blue murder when it doesn't on the same matter. Useless party with no ideals

Mahmood Yakubu is the worst INEC boss Nigeria has ever had. He has no business leading even a street light committee not to talk of INEC that requires integrity.
