Bisi Akande flays INEC over alleged inefficiency
Interim National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Chief Bisi Akande has condemned the Independent National Electoral Commission INEC for what he described as inefficiency and electoral manipulation ahead of the 2015 general election.

Akande who bore his mind on the three days Permanent Voters Card collection in Osun State condemned the exercise, saying that he was uncomfortable with the INEC handling of the exercise.

Alleges fraud
According to Akande, the collection of the PVC was marred with irregularities and fraud which underscored INEC inefficiency and incompetence.
Akande who spoke with journalists, weekend, after collecting his PVC in his country home, Ila said: “My assessment of the collection of permanent voters card is that am uncomfortable.

“I came for the validation of my voters card where I registered and voted in 2011 today. I was able to collect my card but some of the people that came after me could not find their names on the list.

Repetation of names
“Some names which appeared once on the voters register in 2011 appeared twice. Some names that appeared in 2011 did not appear again on the list for the collection of the PVC which makes me to become worried and I began to ask questions. Even in some units where INEC registered 100 people, the register never covered 60 per cent success in such areas.

“This makes me to doubt INEC which smuggled 100, 000 names into the voters register in Ondo State and used it to rig election. If we don’t act now and let the world know that INEC is inefficient and fraudulent and that INEC has started manipulation of Osun State election with this exercise, we will be doing a bad thing to Nigeria.”

Akande registered and collected his PVC at Unit 12 Obalumo compound, Atewogbade Street, Isedo 1 in Ward 4, Ila, Ila Local Government Council Area of Osun State.

Reports INEC to APC
The APC chairman said he has reported the situation to the national office of his party; saying: “We have just concluded the registration of our party members and we have met the biometric control for the registration of party membership.”
