Election 2019: Parties Reject Appointment Of President Buhari’s Niece As Head Of Collation

Unic Press UK: Many of the opposition political parties in Nigeria have kicked against the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) appointment of President Muhammadu Buhari niece, Amina Zakari, to serve as the chairperson of the national collation center committee during the General Election coming up on February 16, 2018.

In a statement Thursday, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) said that the appointment of Buhari’s niece, Amina, is an invitation to violence and major political crisis in the light of the ignoble roles she played during the 2018 Governorship Election of Osun State. The party added that:

“This is the same Amina Zakari, who headed the ICT department of INEC at the time the department was accused of manipulating the INEC voters register  to accommodate fictitious, underage, alien voters… In appointing Mrs. Zakari to head the collation of this Presidential election, Prof. Yakubu has confirmed that he has been compromised and that he has already succumbed to pressure. The fact remains that there is no way Amina will not allocate votes to her blood relation, President Buhari… With Amina as the head of results collation, there is no way votes cast by Nigerians will count.”

In a tweet, the presidential candidate of the Action Congress Party of Nigeria (ACPN) accused INEC making decisions that contradict its claim of independence.
