INEC Chairman Prof Yakubu Should Apologise To Nigerians, Says Most Rev Nwaobia

By NewsCritic Reporters

Archbishop of Aba Province and Bishop, Diocese of Isiala Ngwa South Church of Nigeria Anglican Communion, The Most Rev Isaac Chijioke Nwaobia has demanded for an apology from the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Prof Mahmood Yakubu for taking Nigeria 30 years backward. He also called on the judiciary to rise to the occasion and deliver a godly judgement that will rekindle hope to the world.

The Anglican Arch Bishop stated this in his address during the second session of the fifth Synod held at St Augustine Anglican Church Mpuka, Isiala Ngwa South with the theme My Family, My Empire on Thursday 11th -Sunday 14th May. He said that the INEC Chairman dashed the hopes of Nigerians in his conduct of the 2023 presidential election, adding that he conducted a flawed, non-credible, non-transparent and most corrupt electoral process in Nigeria”.

Bishop Nwaobia said he termed the failure of INEC a betrayal because the means to make the 2023 election angelically transparent was available to Mr. President and INEC, adding that the two chose to betray their country”.

“They made a deliberate choice. I have linked both of them together because Buhari appointed Prof. Yakubu. Had there been a direct transmission of the results from each polling unit to the general public through the portals, all the mayhem which played out in the collation centers would have been avoided, including court cases. That the choice was there to make the votes from each unit to be uploaded directly to the public, but, that route was not taken, must be noted”.

“That day’s poll was a tragedy because it was an unmitigated disaster for Nigeria. The people’s choice of who should be their freely elected leader was disdained as in despised, spurned, disparaged and treated with massive and audacious contempt. This is tragic because the election meant the world for our teaming youths. Suddenly, matters Nigeriana began to matter to them. If this election is not redeemed and the wrongs done to their human rights (implicit in the very act of their being constitutionally responsible to choose their own leader), is not redressed, reversed and punished, they would become alienated, and totally so”.

The Anglican Arch Bishop in concluding demanded that “the INEC Chairman and his team should apologize to the whole world, resign and wait for eternal judgment for the stress caused to our Country Nigeria. He has sent us backward about thirty years behind.

He enjoined all Patriots of this Nation to join and pull back this country, saying that the Nigerian judiciary should rise to the occasion and give a godly judgment. “The Nigerian Judiciary must rekindle hope to all and the international communities. We urge all Nigerians to continue to look up to God. Very soon, sooner than later the perfect will of God concerning this Nation will happen”, Bishop Nwaobia stresses.
