Election fraud: APGA wants colluding INEC officials arrested

The All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) has called on the law enforcement agents in Nigeria to arrest officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) who colluded with some unscrupulous politicians to rig the national assembly elections a fortnight ago across the country, reports ITRealms.

Mr. Okwukwe Ibiam, the national publicity secretary, APGA, told ITRealms that those INEC officials who aligned with dishonest politicians to commit electoral fraud during the presidential and national assembly on March 28, 2015 in Anambra, Abia, Enugu, Nassarawa, Imo and parts of Ebonyi States. 

These officials, Ibiam said in a press statement made available to ITRealms, are a cankerworm to society and must be uprooted if Nigerian democracy is to flourish, describing it as a shame that people entrusted to guard and preserve the society's confidence at the polls willingly sabotaged same.

“Talk about tampering and stealing what was kept in your trust. Is this Long-Neck or INEC?” he wondered. 

APGA insisted that it’s shameful for INEC officials, who willingly colluded with Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) officials at the Local Government headquarters across Nigeria, to re-write the official election results from the polling booths which favored other participating political parties in the elections held Saturday 28/3/15.
“They - INEC officials, should be arrested for treason, knowingly and intentionally inciting the Nigerian voter and public to unrest,” he said.

APGA, he said, therefore call on the INEC Chairman, Professor Attahiru Jega to remove them, “Now and hand them over to law enforcement agents for proper prosecution.”

Ibiam stressed that those failing INEC officials have sabotaged the public trust.

“There is nothing solemn about their oaths to their jobs or the Nigerian public. They may not continue.  We, at the APGA will appeal that they not be entertained in our politics,” he said.
