Elections: Buhari And INEC Chairman Meet At State House



With a little over 48 hours to the Presidential and National Assembly elections, the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), met with the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Prof Mahmood Yakubu, at the State House, Abuja, on Wednesday.


Sources gathered that the unscheduled meeting was at the instance of the INEC Chairman who explained that it was all part of efforts towards free, fair and credible elections.


Earlier, Buhari revealed that he met Yakubu while explaining his delayed arrival for the commissioning and handover of security equipment valued at over N12bn to the military and Nigeria Police Force by the Coalition Against Covid-19.


The President told the CACOVID-19 group that his five-minute delay was due to an ongoing engagement with the INEC Chairman.


However, he reminded the team that the meeting was for a successful conduct of elections.


Buhari said, “I’m being grounded by INEC.


“You know next Saturday is a great day for us and I take instructions from INEC so that I make sure there’ll be no excuses for the successful election.”
