S/Court Ruling: What Happened In Imo Enough For INEC Chair To Resign — APC Chieftain

Published

on

INEC Chairman, Mahmood Yakubu

A chieftain of the All Progressive Congress, Mr Peter Esele, said on Friday that the Independent National Electoral Commission should take all the blames for the verdict of the Supreme Court on the Imo election.

Esele, a former President of the Trade Union Congress of Nigeria, made the declaration while speaking in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Benin.

He argued that Nigerians should look beyond the controversy of the judgment and address the foundation of the judgment

The activist noted that the judgment underscored the inefficiency and ineptitude of INEC.

According to him, the result of the governorship election, held on March 9, 2019, in Imo should not have been announced in the first place because so many irregularities were reported during the election.

Esele said that in view of the reported irregularities, one would have expected INEC to have cancelled the election and have a proper election conducted.

“INEC did not do its job properly so that is why Supreme Court judges are intervening.”

The APC stalwart stressed that for the Supreme Court to have a unanimous decision over a matter or election, it means the election was badly conducted.

“So what happened in Imo State is enough for the INEC chairman to resign if Nigeria is a sane clime where things are done properly.

“Whoever is aggrieved has to accept it because the Supreme Court is the highest court in the land,” said Esele.

Tinubu

A Southwest Association, Save Lagos Group, has given the All Progressives Congress stalwart, Bola Tinubu, 24 hours to reveal his position on the Western Nigeria Security Network codenamed ‘Operation Amotekun’.

Tinubu, who is seen as the leader of the Southwest by many, has remained silent on Amotekun which was launched by Southwest governors last week.

The Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, SAN, had on Tuesday declared the outfit as illegal while the Southwest governors have remained unfazed.

In a statement on Friday, the Convener, Save Lagos Group, Adeniyi Sulaiman, said the group was giving Tinubu 24 hours to speak up.

Sulaiman asked Tinubu, who is an advocate of restructuring, to be courageous regardless of his rumoured Presidential ambition.

The activist rubbished threats by northern groups like the Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore which stated that supporting Amotekun may cost the Southwest the Presidency in 2023.

He said it was hypocritical of the Federal Government to allow Shariah Police, Hisbah, to operate in more than 10 northern states while it declared Amotekun, which is operating only in the Southwest as illegal.

The SLG convener said the safety of the people of the Southwest was worth more important than any Presidential ambition.

He commended several personalities like Nobel Laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka; Afenifere chieftain, Chief Ayo Debanjo; activist, Mr. Femi Falana, SAN; Chief Olu Falae, Otunba Gani Adams and several others for speaking up for the people of the region.
