INEC under Mahmood is a disappointment, says HURIWA
The Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA) has described as disappointing and shameful the eleventh hour decision of the Yakubu Mahmood led Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to postpone the Presidential and National Assembly’s polls by a week.
The group said the postponement is a demonstration that INEC under Yakubu Mahmood is either under a spell or is being tele-guided by the Presidency which has become tensed up and worried that the incumbent has lost the opportunity of rigging the polls because of clear cases of poor performances in the last four years.
HURIWA, in a statement by its National Coordinator, Emmanuel Onwubiko, yesterday, said it was unfortunate that after millions of Nigerians had trooped to their communities for the election, the electoral umpire was yet to tidy up the arrangements for a smooth conduct of a peaceful, free, fair and transparent general elections.
