The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has asked Prof. Mahmood Yakubu to resign his chairmanship of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.
The PDP said the call followed further review of “the widely-condemned infractions, brazen violation of the provisions of the Electoral Act, 2022 and criminal manipulation and alteration of election results”.
National Publicity Secretary, Debo Ologunagba declared INEC subverted the will of Nigerians in the February 25, 2023 Presidential and National Assembly elections.
In a statement on Friday, the PDP also condemned “the latest scheme” by the commission to reconfigure the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System, BVAS ahead of the state polls.
Olugunagna said NEC’s insistence was meant to “erase and destroy evidence of its manipulation of the presidential election, denying Nigerians and parties” access to relevant information.
