The pan-Yoruba socio-political organization, Afenifere has called for the replacement of the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Mahmood Yakubu.
Afenifere expressed dissatisfaction with the INEC level of preparedness to conduct a free, fair and credible elections in the country as 2019 draws nearer.
Speaking through its National Leader, Chief Ayo Adebanjo, the organization demanded that the whole INEC team be disbanded.
Adebanjo spoke to reporters at Toru-Orua, hometown of Bayelsa State Governor, Hon Seriake Dickson during the burial ceremony of his late mother, Mrs Goldcoast Dickson.
He said, “We have said it before that we don’t have any trust in INEC as it is presently constituted.
“In fact, we are of the view that the whole team should be disbanded.
“For us to have a free and fair election, there should be no relation of a contestant in the presidential election in INEC’s leadership.”
The Afenifere chieftain also restated the group’s commitment to the ongoing struggle for the restructuring of the country.
