INEC monumental disgrace, I’m ashamed – Chidoka


Osita Chidoka, a PDP leader, has criticised the Independent National Electoral Commission, or INEC, for the way it handled the most recent presidential election.
Chidoka criticised INEC for being unable to electronically transmit real-time election results.
“INEC is a monumental disgrace. INEC is an organisation I am ashamed to be associated with as a Nigerian.
“I came on this programme and called for third-party verification of the INEC system so that we are sure that on election day what is going to happen that day would not lead to a glitch. On election day, INEC said there was a glitch.
“Despite not testing the system, it is a shame that INEC went to court to argue that not complying with its regulation does not make it a ground to cancel an election,” Chidoka said.
He continued by saying that INEC's struggles with this matter reflect poorly on the country in the eyes of other nations and questioned why it was unable to follow the example of nations like India and Indonesia, who, in his opinion, have sizable populations but hold more effective elections.
