Political Parties Kicks As INEC Names Buhari’s Niece Official To Announce Presidential Result

The Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) has declared the appointment of President Muhammadu Buhari’s niece, Amina Zakari as the Chairperson of Presidential Election Collation Centre as a plot by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to rig the 2019 election in favour of the nation’s leader.

The appointment came just after INEC denied that it was being pressured by the Presidency and the ruling APC to rig the election.

But CUPP said the denial had now fallen flat on its face and exposed the Electoral Commission as a part and parcel of the rigging machinery of the APC.

CUPP spokesman, Imo Ugochinyere, said: “The desperation of the President must be reined in now before it is too late. We categorically reject this appointment and will consider very drastic measures including pulling out of the peace accord which does not repose a commensurate responsibility of the President to allow INEC conduct a credible, free and fair election.

“Her appointment is a direct invitation to anarchy and must be reversed without delay. We have it on good authority that the INEC Chairman is being blackmailed by the Presidency with investigation reports of the EFCC which discovered massive corruption when the Chairman held sway as Executive Secretary of the Tertiary Education Trust Fund.

“This system of cultivating corruption is the main stay of the Buhari led government. In Osun State, the same system was deployed with a governorship candidate who traded his support for freedom from prosecution. It is clear that the Presidency has successfully put a leash on the neck of the INEC Chairman and he has by this appointment relinquished a most critical element of his job as the Presidential election returning officer to an interested party.

“With a compromised Police Inspector General of Police whose continued illegal stay is a threat to national security and a compromised Chairmanof INEC, CUPP hereby calls on coalition member candidates for Senate and House of Representatives to gird their loins as they are going to be the first line of defence on the Election Day to stop these election riggers.”

Disclosing this in a tweet, the Chairman, Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, said the returnees would proceed on compulsory 14 days quarantine as stipulated by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control.

Some of the nationals had faced serial racial discriminations in Guangzhou, China, from provincial officials.

They were reportedly evicted from their apartments and hotels following their alleged refusal to go for the mandatory quarantine imposed by the Guangdong Provincial authorities sequel to the outbreak of coronavirus.

Some Nigerians sent a video of a woman with two children who were staying on the streets.

In the footage, the unidentified woman was feeding her infant daughter as the older second child slept in a baby walker; she was allegedly evicted from her apartment.

But the Chinese authorities said they subsequently provided free hotel accommodations for 207 Nigerians.

The government said the beneficiaries included Nigerians who were evicted from their hotels and apartments by officials in the wake of the compulsory quarantine and testing of foreigners for coronavirus by the Guangzhou Municipal Authorities.
