INEC, prove your­self in 2019

Weekly Trust - - Weekend Magazine -

The doubt in ev­ery­one’s mind is whether the cur­rent INEC un­der the cur­rent chair­man can and will ac­tu­ally de­liver a free, fair and cred­i­ble elec­tion next year. Peo­ple are won­der­ing if Mah­mood Yakubu will write his name in gold as did At­tahiru Jega in 2015. But the thing is that to­day, Jega is highly re­spected na­tion­ally and in­ter­na­tion­ally, and any­one who wishes to be so rec­og­nized should come to eq­uity. I wish to put it to Yakubu that the world is watch­ing how he con­ducts next year’s elec­tion, and he has to choose be­tween in­tegrity and syco­phancy as we get into the polls. Per­sonal and na­tional in­tegrity are at stake here as the world watches.
