Osun Rerun: How INEC Discredited Own Process to Please APC – Opposition Coalition




By Chibuike Nwabuko
Abuja (Sundiata Post) – Coalition of United Political Parties has narrated how Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) allegedly discredited its own process just to please the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the Osun re-run election.
 The coalition narrated this in a statement signed by its spokesman, Mr Ikenga Ugochinyere, made available to newsmen in Abuja on Thursday.
The group which described the exercise as a show of shame, said that the deduction of votes from Senator Adeleke, the fictitious adding of votes for Alhaji Adegboyega Oyetola, and suspicious declaration of an election adjudged by all INEC accredited observers as the freest and fairest in recent times as inconclusive due to disruptions, amounted to INEC discrediting its own process just to please the APC.”

According to the coalition, “it was unfortunate that the same INEC that claimed to have cancelled results of some Polling Units due to disruption “watched with collaborative silence as security forces comprising the police, civil defence, Federal Road Safety Corps, National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, Nigeria Immigration Service, Nigeria Customs Service and the Nigerian Army comfortably turned themselves into the joint militant wing of the vote-stealing APC.”

It also expressed worry that the Independent National Electoral Commission and the Nigerian security forces had allegedly turned themselves into organs of the All Progressives Congress.

Wondering why “For the very first time in Nigeria’s electoral history, accredited journalists and observers were manhandled and stopped from accessing voting areas.

It also condemned the fact that security forces watched while APC thugs molested and intimidated voters, dispossessed them of their Permanent Voter Cards and abducted accredited agents of the opposition.
