Rights association doubts fair polls under INEC

HURIWA’s National Coordinator, EmmanuelOKORO CHINEDU
LAGOS, (CAJ News) – THE Human Rights Writers Association (HURIWA) has  expressed reservations about the capabilities of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) conducting credible general elections in 2019.

The group based its doubts on the inconclusive polls the electoral body  has conducted recently in Imo and Rivers States.

HURIWA condemned INEC for nullifying results of the Okigwe senatorial  rerun election only in the areas whereby reportedly, People’s Democratic  Party seemed to have emerged victorious and only declared the result of the state assembly seat whereby INEC’S the APC reportedly won.

It recalled INEC had declared as “inconclusive,” the Okigwe senatorial zone re-run election, which took place last Saturday.

HURIWA, in a statement by National Coordinator, Emmanuel Onwubiko, and National Media Affairs Director, Zainab Yusuf, said the “unambiguous  partisan” conduct of the current leadership of INEC in the inconclusive  elections specifically in Imo and Rivers was a pointer to the fact that it could not be trusted to conduct a “free, fair, transparent and crisis free” general elections in 2019.

“Because as the saying goes, the early morning shows how the rest of the  day would be.”

The officials alleged the electoral authorities were biased against the opposition PDP.

“We smell a rat.”
