Before this weekend’s scheduled governorship election, the Middle Belt Forum has that Prof. Mahmoud Yakubu, the chairman of the Independent National Election Commission, quit.
The forum asserted that the call came as a result of the commission’s alleged refusal to transmit the results of the February 25 election from each polling location through the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System to INEC Election Result Viewing Portal and the alleged subversion of popular will in the most recent general elections.

According to the organisation, the Middle Belt’s support for Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, during the most recent general elections was based on shared values of justice, equity, and fair play.

The President of MBF, Dr. Pogu Bitrus, said this in a statement issued in Abuja on Wednesday.
Pogu said, “We call on the INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmoud Yakubu to toe the honourable path by resigning his position before the next election. His frittering away of tens of billions of Naira on a technology that he did not intend to use makes him unfit to continue to maintain his position.”

The forum disclosed in the event Yakubu failed to tender his resignation after its press statement, the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), should fire him.
As political parties and candidates head to the election petition tribunal, the forum strongly urges the Judges to remain on the side of justice and ensure the wheel of justice is not compromised.
It added, “On the basis of fairness and inclusivity, it was imperative for the South East to produce the next President of Nigeria from Southern Nigeria.”


The forum noted that the results of the February 25 general elections from the Middle Belt enclaves in the 14 states and the FCT demonstrate the commitment of the region to stand as a bulwark against anti-democratic and feudal forces determined to foist a culture of impunity, divisiveness and inequity on our Nation.

Pogu, on behalf of the forum, congratulates Nigerians, especially Middle Belt residents, for coming out en masse to exercise their civic duties.

However, it said INEC was not prepared to conduct free and credible elections.
“Despite the commitment of Nigerians, particularly youths, to register and vote for a President of their choice, INEC, in collaboration with anti-democratic forces, brazenly subverted the will of the people. This subversion was orchestrated by the electoral commission in 2022.”
