The Leader of Good Governance Ministry ( GGM) – Comrade Chinedu Asuzu has demanded an immediate resignation of INEC Chairman – Prof Mahmood Yakubu. In a statement released to BVI Channel 1 online , Comrade Asuzu insisted that Prof Yakubu has betrayed the trust millions of hardworking Nigerians reposed on him and should vacate the INEC Chair immediately to assuage the anger and frustration of the Nigerian Masses. The statement reads in full ” INEC is under statutory obligation in line with section 38 of the electoral act 2022 to transmit results electronically soon after results have been announced at the polling units. INEC under the Leadership of Prof Mahmood Yakubu working closely with APC Presidential Candidate, deliberately violated that section of the constitution in order to arrive at pre-determined result . GGM wants to make it clear that collation of results without cross- checking with BVAS is illegal . The Electoral Act is not ambiguous about this procedure and concurrency requirement between BVAS figures and manual figures. This indicates that manual collation cannot proceed without first being tallied with figures from BVAS . Again ,the law mandates INEC Chairman to review any election in any place within 7 days and reverse the results where there is no compliance with the Act and Guidelines. Good Governance Ministry noted that the Nigerian masses have made loud statement during last Saturday Presidential election ,sadly Prof Yakubu and Co-travellers dashed the hopes of millions of emotionally battered Nigerians.The INEC Chairman has broken the law of the land,therefore ,he must resign without further delay” the statement concluded.
Good Governance Ministry is a political Ministry advocating for better and liveable society . The Ministry is at the forefront of promoting public interest. Politicians use money to buy votes because they have not used public office to serve public interest.
