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.
