Atiku finally reacts over speculations that INEC’s Amina Zakari is Buhari’s niece

Following speculations that the newly appointed Head of Collation Center for the 2019 election, Amina Zakari has a family bound relationship with President Buhari who is also a presidential candidate for the 2019 general elections, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar has taken to challenging the standards of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC

According to Atiku, Amina Zakari has no business being appointed in such delicate position in a time like this and should be removed with immediate effect

While Zakari fears to count her losses as it is uncertain if she would get removed from the well deserved position because of political reasons, President Buhari has refuted the claims, stating outrightly that he had no blood relation with Zakari.

But speaking through the spokesperson of his Campaign Team, Kassim Afegbua, Abubakar said the history of Zakari’s Amina’s engagement in INEC has been a subject of “public criticism” for quite some time.

Featuring on the Channels Television breakfast programme Sunrise Daily, yesterday, he said “We have seen her roles in previous elections, and so to that effect, we know she is being accused of being partisan in the way and manner she has been conducting herself within the INEC and her responsibility, hence, somebody cannot just come and rub off all that.

“If we say somebody is a niece, that means maybe the mom is a sister to President Buhari and this is a daughter to a woman who is a sister to the president.”

He stated that the relationship between Zakari and Buhari was not the main issue, stressing that the bane of discussion was the standards upon which INEC operates.

In his words;

“INEC must as a matter of responsibility allow the electoral process to be seen to be transparent, to be devoid of any partisan inclinations to an extent that the participants in the electoral process would see that INEC is fair enough in the way and manner in which they deploy staff (whether ad-hoc or permanent) in the process of conducting elections,”

He stressed that the beauty of elections and the transparency of it, “is the fact that people who are participants should naturally own it, are buying into your own (INEC’s) decisions and policy framework, so that in the final analysis they will say yes given a level playing field in the respective aspects of the election, INEC has been able to live up to its bidding”.
