The group said Zakari's alleged relationship with President Buhari will affect a free and fair election. The Northern Youths Coalition group called on chairperson of the Committee on National Collation Centre, Amina Zakari, to resign her appointment over her alleged relationship with President Muhammadu Buhari. Chairman of the group, Shetima Yerima, said the controversy surrounding the relationship between President Buhari and Zakari has raised doubts in people's mind.
Independent reports that Yerima said Zakari must resign to ensure a free and fair election. The Northern Youths Coalition's call for Zakari to resign came after the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) urged her to recuse herself from her appointment.
Osita Chidoka, a spokesperson for PDP’s presidential campaign council made the call. Earlier the Proactive Gender Initiatives (PGI) says allegations being peddled against Hajia Amina Zakari are gender-related violence that Nigerian women now face in the society.
National coordinator of PGI, a civil society organization (CSO), Esther Uzoma, made the remark in an interview on Sunday, January 6. With .legit.ng.
