The National Chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomhole has today requested that INEC reshuffle some of its senior officials, saying that some of its workers are working for the People’s Democratic Party PDP.

This he said at a caucus meeting of the APC in Abuja, which was attended by President Muhammadu Buhari, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, 11 APC governors, and other party leaders.

He particularly mentioned the REC in Akwa Ibom, Mike Igini, a revered activist in Nigeria.

Recall NaijaNews reported that Mr Igini raised the alarm that thugs of a political party burnt INEC vehicles in the state. He did not mention the party involved.

Some of our vehicles that were distributing materials were burnt yesterday and who are those instigating this? Politicians.

“This is rather unfortunate. Politicians who are the greatest beneficiaries of this democracy have become the greatest threats,” the INEC official stated on Saturday.

Mr Oshiomhole also accused INEC of leaking its plan to postpone last Saturday’s presidential elections to the PDP.

He also said the APC wants elections to hold across Nigeria at the same time.

“We do not want staggered elections,” the party chairman said.

Speaking after Mr Oshiomhole, President Buhari said INEC must act responsibly.

The constitution and the laws protected INEC, but they must not take us for granted,” the president said.
