Chairman of the Atiku/Obi Campaign Council in Anambra State Mr. Oseloka Obaze has urged the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to conduct credible elections.
Obaze, who spoke during an interactive radio programme on Sapientia 95.3 FM at the weekend, said he doubted INEC’s ability to remain a neutral umpire.
According to him, recent events had put a credibility deficit on INEC, especially controversies surrounding the Ekiti and Osun elections.
He said: “INEC has a record that makes it impossible for my party or any other party, and Nigerians, to say they have implicit confidence in INEC’s ability to deliver credible elections in 2019.”
Obaze noted that the strength of the government in any established democracy derived from public confidence in statutory institutions.
He called on the electoral umpire to ensure the people’s votes count.
