#Anambra Decides: Barr. Kabir Usman raises alarm over plot to manipulate election

One of the frontline aspirant into the office of National Publicity Secretary of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Barr. Mohammed Kabir Usman has accused the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) of conniving with the All Progressives Congress (APC) to rig the forth-coming gubernatorial elections in Anambra State.

Speaking earlier today on Africa Independent Television (AIT) breakfast political show Kakaaki, Barr. Kabir Usman who observed that there may be no elections in Anambra State since Nigerians have no confidence in the integrity of the forthcoming governorship polls, accused top officials of INEC, notably Amina Zakari, a national commissioner, of working closely with the APC to ensure that a predetermined outcome is achieved.

According to Barr. Kabir Usman, “as at now, Amina Zakari is in the same hotel with the APC candidate hence we have no faith in the outcome of that elections.

“Strong controversies have always trailed any election conducted by Amina Zakari and in a decent society, no umpire in an election should reside in the same location with a frontline candidate who has an interest in the election. Not only is Amina Zakari in the same hotel which serves as a make-shift secretariat of the APC in Anambra State, the hotel is owned by Tony Nwoye who is also contesting the elections and lives in the same hotel”, he said.

Barr. Kabir Usman who was the Zonal Legal Adviser of the PDP (North Central) for eight years also stressed that governors of the APC have contributed N100 million each towards ensuring that the Anambra election is manipulated.

Ahead of the 2019 elections, Barr. Kabir Usman stated that the Peoples Democratic Party will constructively engage Nigerians and strike a data based comparison between the 16 years of the PDP and the APC which has visited the country with all manners of hardship, economic insecurity as well as rise in crime, unemployment and other social vices.
