Protesters Call For INEC’s Chairman’s Resignation

By Ikenga Chronicles November 8, 2016

It was a free for all protest as hundreds of protesters on Tuesday afternoon besieged the headquarters of the Independence National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Abuja demanding for the immediate resignation of INEC’s National Chairman, Professor Mahmood Yakubu.

The protesters accused the commission of colluding with the All Progressives Congress(APC) in the production of fake results sheets for the Rivers re-run elections.

Recall that the electoral commission last week fixed December 10 for the Rivers re-run election to produce lawmakers that will represent the south-south state in the Senate and House of Representatives.

Previous elections to fill the seats were marred by violence and subsequently suspended by INEC.

The protesters alleged that a former acting INEC chairperson, Amina Zakari, is conniving with some politicians of Nigeria’s ruling party to print fake result sheets. No evidence was however produced to buttress the allegations.
