The Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide, OYC, the largest Igbo socio-cultural organization, has responded to the new issue surrounding the deployment of the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System, BVAS, and the INEC Results Viewing Portal, IReV, for the 2023 general elections.
According to the OYC, security services and the world community should place Senator Abdullahi Adamu, the National Chairman of the APC, on a watchlist for allegedly toeing a path capable of destroying Nigeria.
According to Anaedoonline.ng, Adamu stated on Wednesday to a delegation from the Commonwealth Election Observation Mission that Nigeria was not yet ready for such technology.
He said, “Our concern is how ready are we to deploy some of these technologies as regards transmission.
“To transmit results, every part of the nation Nigeria I’m not sure that the network covers it.
“I know that even in parts of Abuja, there is no network, and we have from now till February when in substantial parts of the country, there is no electricity.”
Mazi Okwu Nnabuike, National President of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide, reacted to the incident by accusing the APC of attempting to suffocate Nigeria’s democracy.
Okwu said Adamu’s stance confirmed an earlier report of an ignoble attempt to depose INEC Chairman Professor Yakubu Mahmood over his insistence on deploying technology to improve the credibility of the voting process.
“We are in deep shock over the unpopular statement made by the APC National Chairman, Senator Adamu. It is even more unpardonable considering that it is coming from the chairman of the ruling party.
“In countries of the world, a ruling party is expected to be in the vanguard of advancing democracy, but that is no longer the case with the APC.
“It is now confirmed that the Adamu-led APC is behind the rumoured plot to oust the INEC boss from office.
“However, his plot has failed; he has exposed himself as we the Nigerian youths will not let that happen.
“The 2023 general election is between the forces of darkness that have held this country down for decades and the future generation. There will be no hiding place for failed politicians and a million Adamu cannot frustrate that resolve.”
The young group asked INEC to “stay steady because the masses are on your side.” The commission should not yield to evil pressure as we march the evil powers; we will resist the bad forces that do not wish Nigeria well.
“The youths will shut down this country should anyone attempt to toy with the future of Nigeria.
“The highest legacy President Muhammdu Buhari has bequeathed for this country is signing the amended Electoral Act and we shall give the INEC all the support to ensure its full application.
“We also urge President Buhari to stand with the masses and be wary of the likes of Adamu who are pursuing a selfish agenda.”
Okwu urged security agencies and the international community to “place Adamu and his collaborators on watchlist as they are poised to destroy Nigeria to realise their selfish agenda.”
