The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has described apologising to Nigerians over the widespread hiccups that characterised the February 25 elections as a nonissue. INEC said politicians and political parties also should be blamed for its subpar performance.
The Peoples Democratic Party and the Labour Party have accused the ruling All Progressives of violence, voter intimidation and electoral fraud. The APC made its allegations of rigging against the PDP and Labour Party.
INEC said it was unhappy over its failure to upload the presidential election results in its server in real-time while blaming political parties and politicians for the outcome.
Asked if the commission would apologise to Nigerians for failing to upload the election results, Festus Okoye, spokesman for INEC, said, “The issue of apology or no apology does not arise. We have made it very clear that we are not happy with what happened with result upload.
They would deny as expected but the actions of the the military on Feb 25th and the continuous disobedience of the Supreme court ruling over the Naira swap issue gives credence to the news.
Emefiele also contradicted himself in the second to the last paragraph here where the letter states that “the CBN gov does not take part in politics…” How do we reconcile this statement with the fact that the same Emefiele contested and spent billions in his futile effort to be the APC presidential candidate?
He is obviously embittered bcos he lost out and has been on a revenge mission ever since.
The effontary with which the military acted on feb25th in Lagos and the allegation that Emefiele and Gen.TY Danjuma are encouraging same and even more, should be taken seriously by the progressive stakeholders here in Lagos. They and their accomplices know that they’re done with, when ASIWAJU takes over the reigns, hence, their desperation in disrupting and derailing the administrative trajectory of Lagos state where they hope they could seek refuge.
