“INEC Is On A Mission Of Mischief And Its Paymaster Is PDP” – Lai Mohammed

2 Min Read

The Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) has not disguised its disappointment with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), with recent remarks from the Party’s spokesperson, Lai Mohammed clearly accusing the body of deceit and being used as a ‘politics-playing’ extension of the PDP.

The beef was initiated after an INEC spokesperson, Kayode Idowu,  said another party called APC was already under consideration for registration by the body.

The National Publicity Secretary of the party responded that the APC, INEC is claiming is a phantom party, promoted by the PDP in order to score cheap political points.

Mohammed said: “In this case the applicants on behalf of the phantom African Peoples Congress, the clients of Legal World Chambers, have not submitted any of the documents stipulated by the Constitution to the commission. They have only written a letter of intent and therefore INEC could not have issued them any letter of acknowledgment, not to talk of starting the process of verifying the documents. “At this point, they cannot even be regarded as applicants.

“Why then did INEC through its spokesperson gleefully go to the media to proclaim that another political association has applied to be registered as African Peoples Congress using the same acronym APC?. Clearly INEC is on a mission of mischief and its paymaster is PDP who has been having sleepless nights since the merger arrangement was announced.”

“The statement credited to Mr. Idowu is therefore reckless and provocative and clearly portrayed INEC as truly having merged with the PDP to frustrate the merger of the progressives under the banner of the All Progressives’ Congress (APC). One wonders who the spokesman is speaking for and what interest he represents. He should therefore be called to order before he sets the country ablaze,” Mohammed said.
