The opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has laid an allegation on the appointment of Amina Zakari. Chief Charles Udeogaranya a member of PDP describes the appointment of Amina Zakari, as head of collation centre at Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, as a symptom against credible result in 2019 elections. He said: “In the worst act of election result falsification, INEC has commissioned their first step towards announcing fake and fiticious 2019 election results by the appointment of President Buhari’s niece, Amina Zakari, as head of INEC’s Elections Collation Centre. He continue “The world must step in now and caution INEC over this deadly step towards balkanization of Nigeria, as the people of Nigeria will not accept false election results from INEC in their bid to impose President Buhari on Nigerians with the 2019 Presidential election result. The PDP believe the election would be rigged with such appointment. However, the presidency says “the PDP has continued their baseless accusations regarding Amina Zakari, accusing her of partiality and casting doubts about her integrity as an electoral commissioner.
“What’s even more curious about all the fuss coming from the PDP is that they, as a ruling party picked Hajiya Zakari, judging her by her own merit and made her an electoral commissioner.
“In their desperation, they forget that it was the PDP government that appointed her in the first place and they keep lying, as they have been caught doing on so many issues, by imputing a blood relationship between her and President Muhammadu Buhari”.
“President Buhari and Commissioner Amina Zakari do not share a family relationship. An inter-marriage occurred in their extended families, so the imputation of blood relationship between the president and the electoral commissioner is a lie”.
The AAC presidential candidate Omoyele Sowore has also advice Amina Zakari to resign the position for integrity sake.
