In Enugu, Abia and Adamawa states in particular, the INEC has been going back and forth, speaking from both sides of their mouth and playing hide and seek with the election results.
In all of the three states mentioned above, the electorate already knows who their duly elected gubernatorial candidates are. But INEC claims it doesn’t for sundry contrived reasons.
This note is simply intended to draw the attention of the general public, the relevant authorities, all lovers of democracy, good governance and peace and indeed all persons of goodwill to the manoeuvering and manipulations of a few corrupt and compromised officials of INEC who are working hard to create crisis and provoke the break down of law and order by attempting to change the voice, vote and choice of the electorate.
This country is already on edge after the February 25 and March 18 elections. INEC should therefore be doing and be seen to be doing everything to de-escalate the tension, anger and disillusionment in the land and not to deliberately or unwittingly do the opposite.
I hereby call on President Buhari and the INEC Chairman to call the INEC officials in these and similar states to order. It is time to do the right thing for once and save Nigeria and Nigerians the possibility of further embarrassment and crises. A stitch in time saves nine.
Chief Mrs Mary Ikoku
