Emefiele: What Emefiele’s Political Ambition Might Make Us Do – INEC

Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), has stated that crucial election documents may be moved from the Central Bank of Nigeria’s vaults (CBN).

According to Anaedoonline.ng, this follows rumored plans by CBN Governor Godwin Emefiele to run for President Muhammadu Buhari’s successor in 2023.

The election umpire may be obliged to shift its sensitive documents, INEC chief stated on Thursday in Abuja during the second quarterly meeting with the media.

“I understand the context in which the question is asked. But you should also understand the context in which events are unfolding. As we speak our director, litigation and prosecution is in court,” the INEC chairman said.

“There is a case in court. We have been invited to state our own side of the story. We usually refrain from talking about such issues because there are essentially subjudice. But we are already started talking about what alternatives are available to us in case we need to change the arrangement for the handling of sensitive materials.

“We have started thinking about it. We are aware of the situation. We will watch the situation. We still have 9 months before the next general elections. Things may be addressed out before then.
