Protesters Demand Immediate Removal of INEC Boss, Mahmood.


Few days ago the national leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party were planning to take their protests against the conduct of the February 23 presidential and National Assembly elections to the headquarters of the Independent National Electoral Commission.

News reached today, that some protesters exercised their right and walked to the commission headquarters demanding the resignation of INEC boss.

The Protesters however were not the PDP personnels but affiliated with the Save Nigeria Democracy Group. They faulted  INEC over the the recent spate of inconclusive elections declared by the commission.

This is sequel to some female members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) who protested on Sunday evening  INEC headquarters in Minna, Niger State. The women alleged that the governorship election on Saturday had been tampered with and would not agree with the results being collated.

The protesters affiliated with the Save Nigeria Democracy Group (SNDG) expressed their opposition to the spate of inconclusive elections declared by the commission claimed the results from the just concluded elections did not reflect the true voting direction of Nigerians, This Day reports.

The leader of the group, Tijani Abdulmumuni, told the INEC representative, who came to receive the protesters, that the commission’s failure to conclude the collation of results from some states was dangerous at it could plunge the country into chaos.

“This latest show of desperation has further strengthened earlier concerns of widespread voter suppression, targetted violence, militarisation of the political space and systematic inflation of figures that punctuated the presidential and National Assembly elections,” Abdulmumuni said.

“It also heightens the fear of the dire consequences of the federal government muscling INEC and the nation’s security into turning blind eyes to obvious infractions and violations of the federal constitutional provisions and Electoral Act and the regulations/guidelines regulating the 2019 general election and went ahead to uphold and announce a tailored result that only serve the ruling APC.”  He concluded.
