According to the statement, conducting free, fair, and credible elections in 2023, as evidence, confirms that he has endangered and compromised his office with the level of allegations levelled against him by the Coalition of United Political Parties CUPP which revealed that the INEC Chief Umpire is biased, unpredictable and unreliable to independently give Nigerians a credible election and the best option for him is to tow the path of honour and resign honourably.

“If he refused to quit honourably, he should be sacked and interrogated by the relevant agencies for the manipulation and distortions of voters’ register in line with the laws of the land.

“Nigerians have lost confidence in the electoral process under the watchful eye of Prof. Mahmood Yakubu as his continued stay as INEC Chairman, constitutes a security risk for the country and any elections supervised under him might not be acceptable and can trigger an avoidable constitutional disaster that might derail our hard preserved democracy in 2023.


“The outcome of the Osun and Ekiti elections, there are so many sins of Prof Yakubu that should lead to his sack. The issue of sacking INEC officials in the database was obviously for the falsification allegations against him by CUPP and Prof Yakubu’s disobedience to the pronunciation of Supreme Court verdict on APGA leadership crisis.

“Prof Yakubu owes Nigerians an explanation for the falsification allegations by CUPP and Nigerians are hoping for President Buhari to get rid of people like Yakubu before he destroys Buhari’s parting gifts for Nigerians, a promise of a free, fair, and credible election in 2023.

“This is the best way to get rid of bad eggs in INEC and Prof Yakubu should be shown the door or he will plunge Nigeria into a constitutional dilemma and crisis.”
