Following Senate’s clearance of reappointed Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission INEC, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, the All Progressives Congress (APC) has called on the chief electoral umpire to be unbiased and apolitical.

In a statement, the ruling party by its Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Mr Yekini Nabena, on Tuesday in Abuja, noted that though Nigeria’s election processes are far from perfect, there are however marked improvements recorded in series of recent elections conducted.

The statement added: “The task before Prof. Mahmood Yakubu and the election management body he leads is to strive further in being unbiased and apolitical.”

The party noted that technological innovations recently introduced and deployed by INEC have greatly improved the credibility and efficiency of the election processes, saying that “we must continue to support and invest in these innovations”.

Adding: “The Party also urges INEC to continually embark on regular voter education and sensitisation to improve voter turnout and check illegalilities such as vote buying and other emerging frauds in our electioneering processes.

“In all elections, valid votes must count and the majority will of the electorate must prevail. This is a creed INEC and indeed all partisans must subscribe to in the interest of our democracy.”
