Lagos PDP tasks INEC boss on credible, more reliable elections

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Lagos State charpter, has tasked Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, the Chairman, Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on credible and more reliable election as he starts his  second term in office.

The charge was made by the state PDP Publicity Secretary, Taofik Gani, on Monday.

He also said that there is need for the INEC Czar read the riot act to the INEC officials .

“Indeed, the INEC Chairman should show more fairness and be able to speak the truth to his “employer”. The INEC chairman should prove his critics wrong by delivering credible elections all over the country.

“Prof. Yakubu must show competence by not limiting duty to Election Day alone. He must read the riot act to all staff of the commission and himself to stay very credible and contented.

“All he needs is stern body language and all will be proper. The late Dora Akunyile single-handedly revolutionised service delivery at NAFDAC, today she remains a heroine,’’ Gani said.

He also advised him to restructure the entire process of INEC through credible voters registration, education and elections.

“Importantly, INEC must regularise continuous voter registration, look into adopting electronic voting.

“We can start from all possible constituencies. Even in the United States, some areas still did manual voting. These two areas should start now,” he added
