The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, have today alleged that the Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai and Amina Zakari, are in charge of the Information and Communication Technology, ICT, at the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.
This, the party’s chairman, Uche Secondus said at the PDP’s emergency National Executive Council, NEC, meeting in Abuja, while reacting to allegations that INEC informed the PDP about plans to postpone the election before taking actions.
Oshiomhole had alleged that INEC’s officials hinted the PDP before postponing the Saturday’s elections.
Uche Secondus however dismissed the claim, stressing that the government in power was in total control of the electoral umpire.
Speaking during PDP’s caucus meeting in Abuja, Secondus said: “Since last Saturday they have been talking and making claims, they even accused INEC of telling us before postponing the election. All they have been saying is they are not aware, they don’t know but I dare to say that the government is in totally in control of INEC,
“This government appointed one of the vendors who is from the Villa and the other is from Niger State and they are members of APC.
“The ICT of INEC is totally controlled by El-Rufai and Amina Zakari so I don’t see how they will turn around overnight. But maybe it’s part of their plans to win, but Nigerians know the facts. This government is in control of INEC.”
