A Human rights lawyer, Chief Mike Ozekhome, has reacted to the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, appointment of President Muhammadu Buhari’s niece, Amina Zakari as its head of collation center.
By her new appointment, Zakari, who was once the Commission’s Director of Operations, will be responsible for announcing the result of the presidential election.Reacting to the appointment, Ozekhome said INEC’s action was a clear pre-election rigging strategy.
Speaking with Independent yesterday, the Senior Advocate wondered how Zakari would announce the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar winner over Buhari.
He said, “How can any sane human being expect Mrs. Zakari in charge of collation to announce Atiku as winner over his uncle? Is she an angel? “Even Angel Lucifer fell from grace. How can a cockroach win a battle in the midst of lizards?.
“It’s clear that 2019 election is already gravely compromised by the rejection of card Readers and putting Amina Zakari in charge of collation. There is no democracy any more.”
