INEC, toying with Nigeria’s future, Bode George says, urges patience from electorate

A Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Board of Trustees member, Chief Bode George has said that the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, was toying with the future of 170 million Nigerians because of the irregularities that marred the Saturday March 28 Presidential and National Assembly elections.

George who said this on Saturday during an interactive session with journalists stressed that the electoral boss, Prof. Attahiru Jega failed to have an alternative plan for the possible failure of smart card readers used for the elections.

He said that Jega failed to heed to the advice of the PDP regarding the use of card readers.

“Jega is experimenting with our lives, our futures. The card readers have failed in many places. Where they worked, fingerprints could not be identified.

“People are ready to vote, but Jega has not provided the logistics. And we have said this election is not the time to massively use the card readers.

“INEC did not have incident forms at my polling unit. My name and details were written on a scrap of paper,” he said.

He, however, urged Nigerians to exercise patience and restraint in view of the many irregularities in the voting process.
