A stalwart of All Progressive Congress (APC), Faruk Adamu Aliyu, says the chairman of Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Professor Mahmood Yakubu, should apologize to Nigerians for the trauma he made the citizenry to go through at both home and abroad.
Aliyu, who is a close confident to President Muhammadu Buhari, said people travelled to various places across the country as well as those from abroad to exercise their franchise right but only for the election to be postponed few hours to its commencement, said the action of INEC was not only disappointing but traumatic.
He said he would not blame the opposition for any sort of comment over the postponement saying, in 2015, his party also blamed the government of President Goodluck Jonathan, for similar action.
“The action of the INEC chairman was a disappointment. The professor should resign from his position. If it were to be in Japan, he would have committed a suicide.
“It is unfortunate for INEC to have subjected the people of this country, both living at home and abroad to this untold hardship. It’s so traumatic for one to wake up with the hope to exercise his civil duty but only to be told the exercise is cancelled.
