“An Election Conducted Without Compliance Of The Law Is A Nullity” — Omirhobo Tackles Mahmood Yakubu

Malcolm Omirhobo, the controversial and highly acclaimed Nigerian human rights lawyer, has recently taken to his Twitter account to express his opinion on the statements made by the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Professor Mahmood Yakubu, at a press conference.

Professor Yakubu had assured Nigerians that if their petitions against the recent elections held in the country were found to be true, then there would be a redress.

However, Malcolm Omirhobo disagreed with the INEC Chairman's statement, asserting that an election conducted without proper compliance of the law is a nullity. In other words, regardless of what the INEC Chairman may do, the outcome of the election will not matter because the foundation of the election was wrong.

Malcolm Omirhobo has been a strong proponent of human rights and democracy, and has consistently argued in favor of free and fair elections, as well as the proper use of the law. His words of caution in this regard are especially important in a country like Nigeria, where the rule of law is often flouted and elections are often manipulated.

It is therefore not surprising that Malcolm Omirhobo has expressed his opinion that any election conducted without proper compliance of the law is a nullity. This statement is a clear reminder that no matter how much effort is put into an election, if the foundation of the election is not based on the proper use of the law, then the outcome of the election will be null and void. 

It is time that all Nigerians take Malcolm Omirhobo's advice to heart, and ensure that all future elections are conducted according to the law. It is only by doing so that we can ensure that the elections in Nigeria are free, fair, and transparent.
