The People’s Democratic Party,PDP national Vice Chairman , South South Cairo Ojougboh in Yenogoa said that the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC Chairman Prof. Attahiru Jega has appointed a special assistant, Prof. Okuna to singlehandedly nominate and compile names of collation officers for the Presidential election in the 36 states and Abuja without recourse to Resident Electoral Commissioners. According to Ojougboh, the action of Jega is compromising the integrity of the coming elections.
He further said that the development is worrisome and that Prof Okuna is a card carrying member of the All Progressives Congress, APC and that will compromise the integrity of the electoral process. He said this when his team paid a visit to the governor of Bayelsa state. He also said that INEC has just received some electoral material and wondered what material the commission was hoping to use on February 14, 2015.
‘It is disingenuous to accuse everyone who calls for restructuring as trying to break up the county. History tells us that that kind of cheap blackmail will not work as long as the underlying reasons for the agitations persist.’
‘The biggest challenge seems to be that we seem to be allowing moderate voices on this issue to be drowned out by the reckless utterances of a few rabble rousers on all sides who may be tools in the hands of those who do not wish this country well. These are some of the people who arrogate to themselves the toga of spokespersons of our diverse groups.’
