2023 election: INEC, Yakubu working for APC – Atiku


The presidential candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar has lambasted the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for awarding contracts to companies linked to All Progressives Congress (APC) candidates.

INEC National Commissioner Festus Okoye confirmed Binani Printing Press Limited was awarded a contract but said the commission never knew one of the directors was APC governorship candidate in Adamawa, Aishatu Binani.

Okoye said the contract was to encourage Nigerian companies and that a preliminary search at the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) did not show the name of Binani, a Senator.

statement on Friday by Atiku’s Special Assistant on Public Communication, Phrank Shaibu said INEC’s excuse was watery, unconvincing, and suggested INEC was working for the APC.

Shaibu said despite an allocation of over N300 billion as well as financial assistance from the European Union, the United States and the United Kingdom, the commission “run the commission without scruples ‘.

INEC cannot even fool a primary school student. A search on CAC’s portal by youths on Twitter revealed Senator Binani owns the firm that was given a contract to print sensitive INEC material.

“The company with RC 310024, which was registered on March 13, 1997 has Senator Aishatu Ahmed listed as number one.

Prof. Mahmood Yakubu has no plan of leaving a legacy of free and fair elections. With barely a year left on his tenure, his performance as INEC chairman will become a by-word for failure.”

Shaibu lamented that the electoral umpire received the highest financial allocation ever but “still cannot run the agency effectively and deliver a credible election.”
