“Unless Prof. Attahiru Jega is sacked the Presidential Election will not be credible just as he vowed that the people of the Niger Delta especially the youths will resist every unfair elections pointing out that the INEC boss has no business conducting the 2015 presidential election adding that the INEC boss cannot conduct “free, fair and credible election”. Jega give PVC’s to Emirs in the North but our Kings and pastors int eh South-South have not got theirs.
A pro-Jonathan pressure group, Niger Delta Peoples Volunteers Force, NDPSF, under the leadership of Alhaji Muhjahid Asari Dokubo on Thursday demanded immediate sack of the INEC boss, Prof. Attahiru Jega.
The group alleged that the INEC chairman was working to sway the votes in favour of his alleged “Gambari/Fulani Born to Rule” brother, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari”.
The protesters who partially shut down the ever busyEffurun/Ughelli Express Road in Uvwie Local Government Area for hours, accused Jega of allegedly compromising his integrity towards the conduct of the presidential election.
Leading the protesters, Comrade Rex Ekiugbo Emojite Zavi Anighoro who doubled as spokesman of Asari Dokubo accused Prof Jega of allegedly perfecting plans to confer electoral victory on Gen. Muhammadu Buhari in order to return to power through “unfair electoral process’.
The Niger Delta Activist specifically accused Jega of allegedly manipulating the distribution of the Permanent Voter Cards, (PVC) in favour of the northerners as against the people of the south. “The “The people in the north that is volatile have collected their PVC while places like Ekiti, Edo, delta and Bayelsa that is peaceful have not collected their PVC”.
Comrade Anighoro said that the situation was a grand ploy to disenfranchise Nigerians noting that over 20 million eligible voters have not collected the PVC adding that about 600 fake PVC’s were discovered in Ogun state while an undisclosed number of fake PVC’s in Enuge state.
He called on INEC to allow the use of both the Temporary Voter Card, TVC and the Permanent Voter Card to allow Nigerians exercise their civic rights in the forthcoming election.
Comrade Anighoro who accused the Prof. Jega of toying with the future of the South-South also called on the international community to hold Prof. Jega responsible for whatever happens after the conduct of the election.
In his words,” because they want to renew the licenses of their oil blocs in our land, that is why they are fighting President Jonathan to dominate our economy”.
The protesters urged the Federal Government to appoint another INEC boss from the among the Resident Electoral Commissioners, (REC) with a caveat that such a person must be credible and should be from the middle-belt or a minority from the North.
Comrade Anighoro who doubled as the National Secretary of the Youth Wing of the Urhobo Progress Union also warmed that the supporters of the opposition party not to stage any protest if the forthcoming election is not in their favour.
“Jega has compromised, he is pretentious and hypocritical, his sanctimonious posturing is deceit carried too far and we are not fooled. He his determined to enforce a chaotic disorder and turn Nigeria into a theatre of bloodshed, he should resign now, Jega must go, he is a scam, enough is enough.”
