The PDP recently revealed this via a statement issued by its spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, the chairman should start focusing on preparing ahead of the 2023 general election to rejig our electoral commission and work out legislations and operational rules that will make elections more all-inclusive in the country.
He added that PDP demands Prof. Yakubu to also improve on legislation that restricts the involvement of security agencies in voting and collation processes, check underage and alien voters, vote-buying, alteration of results, and manipulation of the voter register.
His words, “The party charges Prof. Yakubu to learn from the Ghana electoral commission, which is making more room for a more all-inclusive electoral process by the kick-starting special voting system to enable personnel of critical service providers cast their ballots days ahead of the December 7, election date.”
“The INEC chairman should initiate processes and procedures that will guarantee prompt arrival of ballot materials, rapid accreditation, and voting; the instant transmission of results from polling units as well as seamless collation of figures.
“Our party demands Prof. Yakubu to improve on legislation that restricts the involvement of security agencies in voting and collation processes, check underage and alien voters, vote-buying, alteration of results, and manipulation of the voter register.
“The PDP urges Prof. Yakubu to pursue an amendment to the electoral act to make it mandatory for INEC to publish voter register online, thus terminating the doctoring of the register and accreditation process.
“It is, therefore, instructive to restate that with the new appointment, Prof Yakubu has been given an ample time and opportunity to redeem the image of the commission and give our nation a credible election that will be devoid of the failures, disappointments, miscarriages, and litigations that characterized his first five years tenure.
“Our party urges the re-appointed INEC chairman to note that the 2023 general election will hugely impact on the fate of over 200 million Nigerians. As such, he must ensure that the nation does not go down in his hands.”
