The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is unlikely to do better in the ongoing governorship and state house of assembly elections than it did on February 25 when it conducted the presidential election.
This is according to the Presidential standard bearer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar.
Atiku made the remark around noon Saturday after casting his vote at his Ajiya Ward voting unit in Jimeta, Yola, stressing that he still has no confidence in INEC.
He told newsmen that INEC did poorly during the presidential election and that the commission has taken no steps since then to make him believe that this round of elections will be better conducted.
Atiku said, “I still don’t believe in INEC. I have seen nothing up to now to believe that their performance will be better in how they handle this election than the last one.”
DAILY PSOT reports that crowds of journalists and supporters of Atiku who gathered at his polling unit early Saturday had to wait for hours before Atiku turned up with his wife, Titi, just before noon.
This was different from the presidential election three weeks ago and the elections in the past when Atiku usually voted before 10 am.
