Obasanjo’s Allegation: INEC Not Under Pressure To Rig

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has said it is not under pressure to rig forthcoming elections.

The electoral umpire also assured that its cooperation with security agencies will lead to a pleasant voting experience for Nigerians.

The reaction came following allegations by former President Olusegun Obasanjo that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), would not be transparent in the forthcoming elections.

Reacting to the allegations during a visit to the Ag. IGP Mohammed Adamu at the Force headquarters, the INEC Boss, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu said: “This is to be expected in an election year when people make all sorts of insinuations but I want to tell you that we as a Commission have never been under any pressure to do what is wrong.

“We will never compromise our integrity to do what the law says that we shouldn’t and for the 2019 general elections, I want to assure and reassure Nigerians that votes and nothing but votes will count.

“With this level of cooperation from the security agencies, I want to assure you that Nigerians will have a pleasant voting experience in 2019.“
