ADP faults INEC timetables

Published

on


The Action Democratic Party (ADP) has rejected the timetable and schedule of activities for the 2019 general elections which was issued by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Tuesday.

The ADP national chairman, Engineer Yabaji Yusuf Sani, who addressed journalists on Thursday faulted the scheduling of the presidential election before the governorship poll.

The INEC had fixed Saturday, February 16, 2019 as the date for Presidential and National Assembly elections, while Governorship and State Assembly elections would hold on Saturday, March 2, 2019.
But Engr. Sani, who claimed that there was an attempt by the APC to rig the 2019 polls, preferred a situation whereby the general elections would start from the state assembly election and end with the presidential poll.

according to the party, “The order of the elections as released by the INEC is one thing we are not comfortable with because once you have a president sitting there, then he calls the shots.

“He can have his way against the wishes of the people of the country. So, this is one area we are not comfortable with and I think that area can be looked into,” Sani said
