There is some level of inefficiency in INEC – Buhari
President Muhamamdu Buhari has berated the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC for postponing the 2019 general election which was meant to start on Saturday.
He said INEC had the time and resources it required to conduct the elections as scheduled. The president lamented that the commission that had consistently claimed that it was ready for the polls could postpone the elections at the last minute.
“Yes I am disappointed because INEC has got all the time and resources needed, and INEC was given all it needed to conduct the polls,” Buhari stated. He added, “Therefore, (it was) supposed to work according to their programme. They were given all the resources. They had all the time and they kept on telling us up to the last minute that they were ready.
“The fact that they are not ready means there is some inefficiency along the line.”
He apologised to Nigerians over what he described as INEC’s inefficiency and appealed to the citizens to patiently wait for the next one week to eventually cast their votes.
“They should be patient, let them come out a week from today and vote. I apologise for this inefficiency because they have to use their own resources to go back to their various polling units at their own expense if they are all that committed,” he stated.
