A former Senate President and Chairman Board of Trustees, BoT, of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Adolphus Wabara, says the shameful conduct of INEC at the polls had subjected Nigeria to mockery before the international community.
Wabara who addressed newsmen in Umuahia expressed his disappointment over the failure of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to upload the results of last Saturday’s Presidential and National Assembly Elections directly from the polling units contrary to its earlier assurances.
He dismissed the polls as a shame because of the way INEC handled it after the people had turned up massively to cast their ballots and called for the outright cancellation of the polls and the conduct of a fresh election if the unity and continued existence of the country mattered anything to those behind what he called the broad-day rape and murder of the Nigeria democracy.
He noted that no pre-election opinion poll results favoured the APC, insisting that the result of the presidential election was doctored to favour the ruling party.
Wabara expressed doubts if the judiciary will be courageous enough to correct the anomaly.
He disclosed that he would convene emergency meeting of the BoT members immediately after the March 11 governorship and House of Assembly polls to review the elections, explaining that the reason for delaying the meeting until after the next election was to allow the members and other stakeholders to focus well on the upcoming elections.
He appealed for calm among PDP members as well as the Nigeria youths, called for a thorough investigation of INEC to restore public confidence in the electoral process.
