President Buhari returned to Abuja

President Buhari returned to Abuja 16th of february 2019 afternoon after the postponement of the Presidential and National Assembly Elections.

INEC chair explains postponement of presidential, National Assembly elections

Read more below.

About thirteen hours ago, I conveyed to Nigerians the decision of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to reschedule the 2019 general elections by one week. Presidential and National Assembly earlier scheduled for 16’h February 2019 will now hold on Saturday 23” February 2019 while Governorship, State Assembly and FCT Area Council elections scheduled for 2’” March 20l9 will now hold on Saturday 9” March 2019. The one-week adjustment was a painful one for lNEC but necessary in the overall interest of our democracy.

• Nigerians will recall that when this Commission was appointed in November 2015, we promised Nigerians two cardinal things. First, we shall work hard to consolidate the improvements made in the management of elections in Nigeria since 20”. Secondly, we shall always be open, transparent and responsive. We have strived diligently to keep these promises in very trying circumstances.

• In keeping with our promise to consolidate the gains of the last two electoral cycles, the Commission has conducted 195 rerun and off-season elections across the country since the last general elections. Most of these elections have been generally adjudged to show progressive improvements in planning, execution and outcomes.

• This commitment to continue to improve on election administration has informed our preparations for the 20l9 general elections. Our goal is to plan carefully, execute meticulously and bring stability into election management in Nigeria. Consequently, we announced fixed dates for elections in Nigeria to the effect that Presidential and National Assembly elections will always hold on the third Saturday in February of an election year. While the Governorship and State Assembly elections follow two weeks later. Having settled this, we began the planning quite early, with a Strategic Plan (SP), 3 Strategic Programme of Action (SPA) and an Election Project Plan (EPP). In fact, the plan for the 2019 general elections was ready in November 2017 and we subsequently issued the timetable and schedule of activities for the elections over one year ago on 9’” January 2018. We carefully followed the timetable and implemented 13 of the 14 activities as scheduled. We kept to the timeframe and have not missed the date fixed for any single activity.

• In preparing for the 2019 general elections, we have come face-to-face with the realities of conducting such an extensive national deployment of men and materials in a developing country like ours. It is said that elections constitute the most extensive mobilization of men and materials that any country could undertake in peacetime. The challenges of doing so even under the best of circumstances are enormous. Within a period of 16 months, we registered over 14 million Nigerians as new voters, collecting their names, addresses, photographs and their entire ten fingerprints. Beyond that, we prepared, printed and delivered their permanent voter’s cards for collection. 1 should note that of the 14.28 million Permanent Voters’ Cards (PVCs) made available for collection, about 10.87 million or 76.12% have been collected.

• It is often not appreciated the magnitude of activities that the Commission undertakes during general elections. Not only we have recruited and trained about 1 million young people to serve as ad hoc staff. The magnitude of materials mobilized for our elections is enormous. For instance, the Commission has printed 421.7 million ballot papers for six scheduled elections, as well as 13.6 million leaves of result forms for the Presidential election alone. Indeed, managing 91 political parties and 23,316 candidates for whom votes will be cast in 119,973 polling units by over 84 million voters is certainly astounding. No doubt, preparations for the 2019 general elections have been extremely tasking for the Commission.

• It is therefore not unexpected that such a tremendous national mobilization of men and materials will encounter operational challenges and we have had our own fair share of such challenges. There have been delays in delivering ballot papers and result sheets for the elections, which is not unusual. However, 1 must emphasize that all the ballot papers and result sheets were ready before the elections despite the very tight legal time frame for finalizing nomination of candidates and dealing with the spate of legal challenges that accompany it. In this regard, the Commission has been sued or joined in over 640 court cases arising from the nomination of candidates.

As at today, there are 40 different court orders against the Commission on whether to add or drop candidates. The net effect of these is that there is usually roughly a one-month window for the Commission to print ballot papers and result sheets and either fly or transport them to several destinations until they finally get to each polling unit. Unfortunately, in the last one-week flights within the country have been adversely affected by bad weather. For instance, three days ago, we were unable to deliver materials to some locations due to bad weather. We therefore had to rely on slow-moving long haulage vehicles to locations that can be serviced by air in spite of the fact that we created five zonal airport hubs Abuja (North Central), Port Harcourt (South South and South East). Kano (North West), Maiduguri and Yale (North East) and Lagos (South West) to facilitate the delivery of electoral logistics.

Apart from these logistical challenges, we also faced what may well be attempts to sabotage our preparations. In a space of two week, we had to deal with serious incidents in three of our offices in Isiala Ngwa South Local Government Area of Abia State, Qu’an Pan Local Government Area of Plateau State and our Anambra State Office at Awka. In all three cases serious disruptions were occasioned by the fire, further diverting our attention from regular preparations to recovery from the impact of the incidents. In Isiala Ngwa South, hundreds of PVCs were burnt, necessitating the recompiling of the affected cards and reprinting in time to ensure that the affected voters are not disenfranchised. I am glad that all the cards were quickly reprinted and made available for collection by their owners.

• In Qu’an Pan Local Government Area, our entire office was razed, destroying all the materials prepared for the elections printed register of voters, ballot boxes, voting cubicles and several electricity generating sets. ll Registration Areas and over I00 polling units were affected by the tire. We recovered quickly and have since replaced everything destroyed. In addition, we secured a suitable building from which to conduct the elections.

• Perhaps, the most serious was the tire incident in our Anambra State Office at Awka, which destroyed over 4,600 Smart Card Readers being prepared for the elections. These Card Readers take at least six months to procure. Despite this setback, we have practically recovered from this by mopping up every available.

Okowa’s Special Assistant has been Killed

Lawrence Ngozi Akpomiemie, Special Assistant of the Youth Development to Ifeanyi Okowa, Governor of Delta State, popularly referred or known to be ‘Notorious’, has been killed by yet-to-be-identified gunmen.

SaharaReporters reliably gathered that Akpomiemie, popularly called Ngozi, was murdered in cold blood on Friday night in Ekpan, Uvwie Local Government Area of the state on his way from an undisclosed outing.

A source, who preferred not to be named, said the deceased was ambushed by the gunmen while returning from an outing with a lady suspected to be his girlfriend, on Friday night. However, it was not clear at the time of this report if the lady was also killed during the attack.

Okowa’s Special Assistant has been Killed by Gunmen.

“You know Ngozi is a notorious criminal in Uvwie too. He has committed so many atrocities against humanity and it is said that he who kills with the gun must also die by the gun and that is what exactly happened to him. This was a man that was sentenced to Okere prison in Warri over murder-related cases and Governor Ifeanyi Okowa brought him from the prison three years ago and made him a Special Assistant on Youth Development all because of his second term election.

“Ngozi was shot repeatedly on his chest and head, and the gunmen waited to make sure that he was dead before leaving the scene. The killers also carted away huge sums of money given to him for mobilization of his gang for the elections. Ngozi was accused of leading a gang that made an attempt on the life of the senator representing Delta Central, Delta State, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, during an event in Effurun on July 15, 2017, where the senator was shot. But Ngozi later denied his involvement.”

Another source, who confirmed the killing of the aide to our correspondent, said: “Ngozi is one of the known hardened notorious gang leaders that ever lived in the area. Why and how Okowa brought him out from the prison and appointed him an aide still remains a shock to everyone. Okowa has a penchant for appointing persons with questionable character. Majority of the appointments the governor made in the state went to persons who have or have been involved in criminal-related cases. This is a fact; go and do a check on their profiles.”

Our correspondent gathered that the killing of the “notorious” aide has sparked off heavy shootings in Ekpan by youth suspected to be loyal to the deceased.

When contacted, the acting Delta State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), ASP Chuks Orisewezie, said he had not be briefed on the issue. However, a Police source confirmed to our correspondent the killing of the governor’s aide by unknown gunmen, adding that the command is only being careful with the issue, since the deceased is a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) family in the state.

On Friday night, two persons were shot dead and about thirteen vehicles destroyed after some hoodlums attacked INEC office in Obot-Akara Local Government Council of Akwa Ibom State.

An eyewitness, who spoke to some journalists on condition of anonymity, said security has been beefed up in the area as fear and confusion had enveloped the community of Obot-Akara.
