Plot To Rig The 2019 Presidential Election As Presidency Wants Buhari's Relative, Amina Zakari Returned As INEC Commissioner In Charge Of Operations!
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is under pressure from some strong political players in the presidency to return the National Commissioner on Health and Welfare, Mrs. Amina Zakari, to her former operations beat from where she was posted last week by the National Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, THISDAY reports.
According to THISDAY, sources in the know at the weekend said that INEC had come under intense pressure to return Zakari, a relation of Buhari to operations, which is the engine room of election management of the commission.
Zakari and four other national commissioners had reshuffled by Yakubu last week after leaders of the main opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) led by Senate President Bukola Saraki, marched on INEC and Police Headquarters, protesting the handling of the governorship election in Osun State last month.
The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Alhaji Gboyega Oyetola, had defeated the PDP’s Senator Ademola Adeleke after a controversial run-off that international and local observers carpeted for what they called undue interference by security forces.
Zakari, who had been variously accused of skewing election processes in favor of the ruling APC, obviously on account of her relationship with Buhari, was particularly accused by the PDP of turning the tables against it in Osun State.
The INEC National Commissioner in charge of Osun, Oyo and Ogun States, Mr. Adedeji Soyebi, also got caught up in the web of the protest and was posted to the commission’s electoral institute. But according to THISDAY, the presidency had been uncomfortable with the postings, coming few months to the general elections and want them reversed. However, sources said INEC National Chairman, Yakubu, is resisting the pressure but fears are he might succumb to the pressure. With THISDAY
