A Governor Excavated Road To Prevent INEC From Conducting Election Under Buhari’s Watch – Chidoka

The Director of Voter Intelligence and Strategy of the Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and a former Minister of Aviation, Osita Chidoka, has opened up on how President Muhammadu Buhari failed in tackling irregularities in elections; as he recounted how a Governor purportedly excavated a road in order to hinder a smooth conduct of an election by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

The former Minister had said, “The eight years of APC in Nigerian Government has been an unmitigated disaster. Under his (Buhari) watch, a governor went and excavated a road to prevent INEC officials from going to conduct election in that State.”

Chidoka, insisted that President Buhari failed in the area of electoral reform. According to him, the President had earlier in the past complained about irregularities during elections, and only became silent when his party, the All Progressive Congress (APC) upturned the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in 2015. He hinted that the process that led to the emergence of Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu as Nigeria’s President-elect was not transparent, as said the President did nothing to ensure the conduct of transparent elections in Nigeria since he assumed Office.

Chidoka recounted how President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan ensured a peaceful and transparent conduct of the 2015 Presidential election; and insisted that Buhari might not have become President if the former President did not take any step to better the system. He, however, did not mention the name of the Governor that prevented INEC from conducting an election in his State.
