The All Progressives Congress has said that it will be forced not to participate in future elections, until the Independent National Electoral Commission is restructured. The Interim National Chairman of the APC, Chief Bisi Akande, said this on Tuesday during the party’s expanded meeting in Abuja. Akande said that besides carrying out far-reaching restructuring, INEC must also get rid of bad eggs in its midst.
He said, “We will be forced to take a decision not to participate in any future elections until there is a far-reaching restructuring of INEC that will see a purge of the bad eggs in the commission, a re-orientation of the remaining staffers and the compilation of a new and credible voter register. “The restructuring of INEC and the compilation of a new voter register are the barest minimum requirements for Nigeria’s return to the path of electoral chastity. “We have no iota of confidence in INEC’s personnel and the commission’s voters’ register, which we believe has been irredeemably tampered with to such an extent that it can no longer be relied upon for any election.”
