Timi Frank calls on the INEC chairman to resign
Timi Frank, former assistant national publicity secretary of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has urged the national chair of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Prof Mahmood Yakubu, to urgently resign from his appointment.
In a statement released Monday, Frank also urged President Muhammadu Buhari to do what is necessary by removing him from office if he does not step down for conducting the worst rigged elections in Nigeria’s history.
He said the call had become imperative because Nigerians had lost absolute confidence in him.
Frank noted: “We are meant to be the light and the example in Africa, but given the dismal behavior of INEC and its officials during the recent Presidential and National Assembly elections, other countries on the continent have absolutely nothing to learn from us because of what Yakubu is and INEC did it.”
He therefore urged Buhari to be brave enough to sack Yakubu for bringing dishonor and disgrace to the country by declaring highly compromised and heavily rigged results for the just-concluded Presidential and National Assembly elections.
Frank said that the election conducted by Yakubu has not reached the international threshold of transparency and credibility and all friends of Nigeria are forced to denounce it.
He insisted that despite the avalanche of facts of manipulation and manipulation that characterized the presidential and national assembly elections, which were available in vast amounts of video, audio and documentary evidence, Yakubu went ahead and elected the APC presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, to the declared winner.
Frank added: “Nigerians have lost faith in Yakubu. His words and his promises mean nothing. He has started again by promising free and fair elections to the governor and state assembly, but Nigerians are not fools because they know he will do exactly the opposite.
“Prof. Yakubu has proven to be a practical disgrace to Nigeria and has brought disgrace, disgrace and embarrassment to Nigerians in the world community. Today, Nigeria is a laughingstock among members of the international community.”
