The Northern PDP New Media Strategists (NPDPNMS) has received with rude shock and dismay the news of nomination of an APC card carrying member and apologist, Mrs. Lauretta Onochie as nominee for National Commissioner into the Independent National Electoral Commission, (INEC).
In a statement by the National publicity relations officer of the group, Muhammad Abdallah said this is coming against the backdrop of undenied allegations that President Muhammadu Buhari appointed his family relation, Amina Zakari into the INEC before the 2019 elections.
According to him, to appoint Onochie a Presidential aide and a full blooded member of the APC into the INEC is akin to being a Judge in your own case, we, the northern PDP new media strategists see this as rigging of the 2023 elections in advance and will do everything including calling on the international committee of nations to call and sanction President Buhari and his undemocratic manipulations of the electoral body, INEC.
He said the group will rather President Buhari stop taking Nigerians for a jolly ride of convoluted democracy and just go ahead to appoint a President for Nigeria in 2023 instead of having a Onochie as an umpire in an election which her party the APC will run against others.
He recalled that President Buhari has continue to erode all democratic gains made in the 2015 Elections that brought him to power as an opposition.
He lamented that President Buhari’s refusal to assent the 2019 Electoral act has left the elections at the mercy of Manipulation, rigging and willful shortchanging of the will of Nigerians.
“As if that is not enough, then comes again the nomination of an APC stalwart and a Presidential aide into the electoral body, INEC.
“This nomination is unacceptable and immoral, as it is illegal.
“The Senate of the Federal Republic should reject the nomination, if President Buhari does not see reason to withdraw the nomination with immediate effect.
“President Buhari should also hasten up to initiate Electoral reforms, including assenting to the Electoral Amendment bill that will bring the required transparency and integrity to Nigeria Elections,” he added.
