The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), yesterday, named Mrs. Amina Bala Zakari chairperson of its ad-hoc committee for the national collation centre, Abuja.
But the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has rejected the appointment of Mrs. Zakari, a National Commissioner with the electoral body.
The main opposition party said Zakari is a blood relation of President Muhammadu Buhari, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), alleging that her appointment was machination by the presidency and INEC to rig the February 16, presidential election.
Also, the apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, described Zakari’s appointment as scandalous.

Ohanaeze said with the latest appointment, INEC’s credibility has been called to question.

Apart from Mrs. Zakari, two other INEC National Commissioners – Prof. Anthonia T. Okoosi-Simbine and Festus Okoye, are members of the committee.

Yakubu disclosed that the election logistics committee, which is headed by a National Commissioner, AVM Ahmed Tijjani Muazu (rtd).

INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahamood Yakubu, who inaugurated the results collation and election logistic committees, said it was another step in the commission’s determination to ensure seamless preparations for the 2019 general elections.

“I wish to reassure Nigerians that we are on course to deliver credible elections in 2019,” he said.

The commission is retaining International Conference Centre (ICC) used in 2015, as centre for collation of presidential election results.

Yakubu said that the Committee on National Collation Centre, which was entirely internal to the commission, would be responsible for the national collation centre from where results of the Presidential election would be announced.
“It will serve as the secretariat for collation of results and venue for briefing of international observers and the media.

“It will also be accessible to agents of the 73 political parties fielding candidates in the presidential election.

“Facilities such as power, access to the Internet, live transmission for national and international media, as well as accreditation for access to the ICC and security of the venue shall be handled by the committee,” he said.

Yakubu said that the Electoral Logistics Committee would be responsible for coordinating logistics, as well as the clearance and transportation of electoral materials to various locations nationwide.

The committee would ensure that sensitive and non-sensitive materials procured by the commission were delivered to almost 200,000 locations nationwide, “ranging from the polling units to the various wards, local governments, states and the national collation centres for the 1,558 constituencies into which elections would be conducted.”
