Anambra Election: Group Gives Ultimatum To INEC, Reveals What Will Happen If They Don’t Comply
Save Nigeria Movement has called for the sack of Mahmood Yakubu, the chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), because he has allegedly been compromised.
The organization stated that INEC may no longer be trusted to conduct a free and fair election in Anambra.
The group was responding to a report on an online newspaper claiming that a South-East governor had offered a $4million bribe to the electoral body.
The convener of the group, Solomon Semaka on Monday in Abuja went ahead to reveal that the alleged governor was Willie Obiano, calling for the immediate resignation of Yakubu.
“At a time the country is just recovering from the effects of COVID-19 global crisis, only an irresponsible governor can shortchange his own people in such a brazen manner for selfish political gain,” the group said.
They revealed that they would occupy INEC headquarters if the chairman and state commissioner refuses to resign within seven days.
“We have lost confidence in the chairman of INEC, Anambra people and Nigerians can now predict the outcome of the election if the duo of Prof Yakubu Mahmoud and Prof Ibeanu Okechuku do not resign from the commission,” the group added.
