Nabena: PDP hires ex-INEC chair for 2019 polls

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - By Muideen Olaniyi

The APC Deputy Na­tional Pub­lic­ity Sec­re­tary, Yekini Nabena, says PDP has hired a for­mer chair­man of the In­de­pen­dent Na­tional Elec­toral Com­mis­sion (INEC) as an ‘elec­tion con­sul­tant’ for the forth­com­ing polls.

Nabena said this yes­ter­day while speak­ing with jour­nal­ists in Abuja, but de­clined to dis­close the name of the for­mer INEC chair­man.

While chal­leng­ing the PDP and its pres­i­den­tial can­di­date, Atiku Abubakar, to deny the al­le­ga­tion, he charged rel­e­vant au­thor­i­ties to in­ves­ti­gate the ve­rac­ity of his al­le­ga­tion.

He urged Nige­ri­ans not to be de­ceived by the al­leged PDP-spon­sored protest and fake news over the re­cent ap­point­ment of Mrs Amina Zakari as the chair­per­son of INEC’s ad hoc com­mit­tee on Na­tional Col­la­tion Cen­tre for the 2019 elec­tions.
