Muhammed Grema Adamu, Chairman of the group in a statement said the continuous stay of Professor Mahmood Yakubu in office would make the outcome of the process, no matter how credible it might appear, not be acceptable,
He said the group’s call is in the interest of peace and national cohesion and to avoid a threat to national security.
“That Prof Yakubu and members of his team should humbly resign to enable an independent probe into the allegation of insertion of foreigners’ names in our voters register and equally compromising their portal to allow scanned passports instead of two different snapped pictures in the registration process to scale through,” the statement suggested.
The group alleged that the bulk stops on the INEC Chairman’s office, hence, the weighty allegation of “Criminal Electoral Treason” levelled against him by the Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) must not be set aside.
He said relevant government agencies must arrest and prosecute Prof Mahmood Yakubu for trying to use his office to effect leadership change in the country which is not in the interest of Nigerians.
The group alleged that the election umpires are morally compromised to deliver on the onerous task, which holds the key to national unity and stability and expressed fear that the outcome of the 2023 election won’t be acceptable by all Nigerians, due to the negative perception most Nigerians hold against the commission.
The statement alleged that while INEC was busy scanning passports and burial pictures and inventing Biometrics for voters registration in the Southern part of the country, they rejected the pleas of the Northern region, following the shutting down of telecommunications networks that led to the suspension of the CVR for four weeks.
