PRESIDENT Muhammadu Buhari  has demanded that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) must explain in further details why the presidential and national assembly elections initially scheduled for Saturday, February 16, was abruptly postponed.

Buhari said this during the All Progressives (APC) caucus meeting held on Monday, at the party’s headquarters in Abuja, to discuss the postponement. The meeting was aired on live television.

He insisted that although INEC is an independent institution according to the constitution, it has to account to Nigerians what actually happened to warrant the postponement, despite having been provided with all the resources it required for the planning of the elections.

“INEC had all the time and all the resources they wanted, they didn’t have to wait for only six hours to cancel the ,” Buhari said, adding that “after the , we have to know exactly what happened and who is responsible”.

“The constitution and the law protected INEC but they must not take us for granted.

“If, for example, the National Assembly refused to approve what INEC wanted, the INEC would have some moral reasons why they couldn’t perform. If the time, constitutionally, of elections, four years after, was not obeyed by the government and the system, INEC would have a case. But we do not understand why this incompetence and we have to go into details, after the elections, to find out who is responsible.”

The INEC National Chairman, Mahmood Yakubu, had already explained that the elections were shifted to a later date as a result of several challenges faced by the commission a few days to the initial election date.

Among the challenges were the issue of logistics and getting materials to their destinations in good time. There were also the fire incidents that occurred in three of INEC’s offices across the country, leading to loss of several crucial equipments, including card readers which he said could take up to six months to replace.

Buhari also recounted the efforts the APC had committed into ensuring that the party had committed members across all the polling units in the federation, and the cost they incurred in ensuring that the party agents’ welfare was taken care of.

He, however, urged all loyal APC supporters across the country not to go to sleep but to restrategise and remain motivated for the now rescheduled elections.

With regards to security situation during the polls, Buhari said he had briefed the law enforcement agencies and the military and that they had identified hot spots and flash points and are prepared to move.

He said arrangements had been concluded and resources provided for the various security agencies as much as the country can afford it, and that he had directed them to deal “ruthless” with anyone who decides to snatch ballot boxes or engage in one act of violence or the other.

“We are not going to be blamed that we want to rig elections. I want Nigerians to be respected. Let them vote whoever they want across the parties. I am not afraid of that.

“The whole 36 states and Abuja, I went round. I think I have got enough support across the country to look after me. So, I am going to warn anybody who thinks he has enough influence in his locality to lead a body of thugs to snatch boxes or to disturb the voting system, he will do it at the expense of his own life.

Earlier, the APC National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, had said that the party would request a meeting with INEC where it would demand a proof that the commission is fully ready for the elections on the rescheduled date.

He expressed doubts over INEC’s ability to reconfigure over 170,000 smart card readers that will be used for the election, and also how the commission expects to go to the polls with just about 4000 spare card readers. Oshiomhole said that every singular card reader ought to have a spare so that if one fails, another would be easily deployed, but a situation where there are only 4000 spare card readers for more than 170,000 polling units, leaves more to be desired.

Oshiomhole also said the party would be demanding to know how INEC intends to ensure that sensitive electoral materials that had already been disbursed prior to the rescheduling of the elections, will not be compromised by unscrupulous politicians.

    I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure
    of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve
    got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could
    connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

    Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the internet the easiest thing to be aware of.

    I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people consider worries that
    they just don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people could take a signal.

    Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

We see Nigeria in Anthony Joshua – APC

We see Nigeria in Anthony Joshua – APC 20191209 042722

Lanre Issa-Onilu, APC spokesman, in a statement on Sunday said the ruling party was “proud to present Anthony Joshua as an emblem of a true Nigerian. We see in him, the embodiment of the national identity every true Nigerian is made of.”

“With Anthony Joshua’s boxing career suffering a major setback following a shock defeat to Andy Ruiz six months ago, he approached the disappointment with positive spirit.

“We are not surprised by Anthony Joshua’s deserved and stunning comeback victory which saw him retake the IBF, WBA, IBO and WBO titles.

“Anthony Joshua now joins a small cluster of men including Muhammad Ali, Lennox Lewis, Evander Holyfield, Mike Tyson and Floyd Patterson to have reclaimed the world heavyweight title.

“Anthony Joshua’s persistence and resilience represent the typical can-do spirit of Nigerians in the face of adversity. He is a man who is proud to be a Nigerian doing his best in his calling to uplift the name of his fatherland.

“He rose to world best in boxing with determination, exhibiting the positive audacity for which Nigerians are known worldwide.”
