The Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria(HURIWA), a civil rights group has rejected the plan by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to use the Parks Management Committee led by Alhaji Musiliu Akinsanya (aka MC Oluomo) for election logistics.
A statement by its National Coordinator, Comrade Emmanuel Onwubiko said deploying members of an organization led by a known All Progressives Congress member and campaign arrowhead of APC standard bearer, Bola Tinubu is already a compromise of the forthcoming general elections.
The group accused the INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner in Lagos State, Olusegun Agbaje, of working for the ruling APC and clandestinely perfecting a scheme to actualise the plot of election saboteurs to rig the elections and put their person in power against the will of the Nigerian people.
Agbaje, on Tuesday, while speaking during the Inter-Agency Consultative Committee on Election Security meeting at INEC Office in Lagos, said the electoral umpire will engage MC Oluomo’s people to distribute election materials and personnel in the state on election day.
“We are not dealing with Oluomo, we are dealing with the park managers.
“Individual people that have vehicles are those we are going to use,” he said.
However, HURIWA’s Onwubiko said, “The plan of INEC to use the organization led by a known APC member who has been seen in many rallies of Bola Tinubu in Lagos, Ogun, Kwara, Osun, Ekiti and other places is condemnable and anti-democratic. HURIWA rejects this in all entirety.
“Apparently, the Lagos Resident Electoral commissioner is working for Tinubu and APC.
“INEC needs to immediately redeploy him for electoral integrity if any at all will be achieved in the next election.”
