Lagos – An official of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), name withheld, has raised alarm over alleged move by the Electoral umpire to rig the forthcoming governorship election coming up on March 18, 2023, in Lagos.
According to the official, who is a member of the INEC team working across the polling units in Lagos State, he received an internal memo from their superior in their Whatsapp group stating that INEC Chairman, Mahmood Yakubu, sent a new list of people who will work on the governorship and state assembly elections.
He found that his name has been removed including other Igbos, Niger Deltans and Christians who worked during the presidential elections in February 25, 2023 especially in Lagos.
“Good evening Guys. Just got a new list of Ratechs from INEC State HQ for the Governorship/State Assembly now. The list was shuffled all through the 20 LGAs in Lagos and if you are still lucky to still find yourself, you will be added to the new WhatsApp group and if otherwise, goodluck, and its nice working with you. Thanks.”
