Like Judges, Amina Zakari Should Excuse Herself if 2019 Election Must be Credible – PDP
The Peoples Democratic Party is not resting his hoarse in their demand that Amina Zakari purported to be President Buhari’s niece should be removed from the significant position she is holding ahead of 2019 general elections.
The opposition released this statement in reaction to Amina Zakari revelation to journalists that she is not a niece to President Buhari neither is Muhammadu Buhari his uncle. Below is PDP’s press release.
Amina Zakari: President @MBuhari’s admittance that he has an inter-marriage relationship with Mrs. Amina Zakari has vindicated our stance that she cannot be trusted with the collation of the 2019 Presidential election results.
In the same vein, we dare President @Mbuhari to respond to respected elder statesman, Dr. Junaid Mohammed, who, in a media chat, revealed that @MBuhari nominated Amina Zakari, his niece, and pushed her appointment as commissioner to represent his interest in @inecnigeria
It is now clear that, in addition to the relationship by affinity, President @MBuhari also has a consanguinity relationship with Amina Zakari and has not denied that he started his early childhood in Amina Zakari’s father’s house.
President @MBuhari’s admittance has effectively established that the PDP has not been crying wolf on the impropriety of involving Mrs. Zakari in the collation of Presidential election results, let alone being appointed to head the final determination of the Presidential election.
It is totally unethical for an umpire to insist on officiating a contest even when her impartiality is called to question. Judges excuse themselves in cases involving parties they have affinity with. Mrs Zakari must therefore, excuse herself, if the 2019 election must be credible.
If, indeed, President @MBuhari is a man of integrity and is not pushing an ulterior motive with Amina Zakari, why is he insisting that she must remain in @inecnigeria and that she must be at the collation of Presidential Election result?
We advise President @MBuhari not to allow his personal interest and lust for power set our nation on fire.
Mrs. Amina Zakari has become a major identified threat to Nigeria’s democracy, national stability and corporate existence as a nation.
Now that Mrs. Amina Zakari has been busted, Nigerians expect her to quietly resign from @inecnigeria instead of allowing her name in the book of infamy, as the tool used to derail our democracy and plunge our nation into crisis.
