Over INEC’s appointment of Amina Zakari, PDP reports Buhari to the United Nations.
The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP , has sought the intervention of the United Nations (UN) over the high-handedness of President Muhammudu Buhari and the appointment of his relative, Mrs Amina Zaraki, as the chairperson of the Presidential Election Collation.
According to the PDP, the President’s alleged desperation has become a major threat to the country’s unity, stability and peaceful electoral process.
The PDP also made requests to several world leaders to call the President to order and save the nation from what it called “imminent collapse”.
The spokesman of the PDP Presidental Campaign Organization, Kola Ologbondiyan, expressed utter displeasure in a statement.
He said “The Buhari presidency has been overheating the polity with its unending manipulations of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), muzzling of free speech and escalated clampdown on opposition and civil society organisations and we insist that such must stop, if we must have a peaceful election.”
He further said “The PPCO insists that there is no way peace can be guaranteed without a free and fair election. Already, Nigerians across the board are livid with anger over the foisting of Mrs. Amina Zakari, President Buhari’s relation, to head the collation of presidential election results.
“We want the National Peace Committee and the entire world to know that as long as Amina Zakari is in INEC, a peaceful election is not guaranteed because she has the mandate to abuse the process and this will not be accepted by Nigerians.
The PDP also said that the recent ordeal of Senator Dino Melaye with the police, was a ploy to silence the opposition.
