2015’s History About To Repeat Itself, As Millions Of Under-Aged Voters Take Over Kano State, Ready To Humiliate PDP In 2019

The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has raised an alarm over the multitude of underaged voters that voted in last Saturday’s Local Government election in Kano State.

Election Observers disclosed that they witnessed voting by underage citizens during the election that was held on Saturday, that saw the overwhelming victory of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, against the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

However, in a statement by INEC’s Spokesperson, Oluwole Uzzi, on Tuesday, he said that the disturbing pictures of underaged voters from Kano State did not relate to any election it conducted or had responsibility for, thereby allaying fears over its capacity for credible elections.

Post-Nigeria recalls that INEC is statutorily empowered to conduct all Nigeria’s elections, except the ones of the Local Government Councils conducted by the Electoral Commissions in each State.

Acknowledging the pictures of the underage voters, the Commission stated that: “As far as we can ascertain, they (the pictures) relate to a Local Government election conducted at the weekend (in Kano)”.

“While the Commission remains resolute in our commitment to sanitise the nation’s electoral process and deliver free, fair, and credible elections, we cannot be held directly or vicariously liable for a process outside our legal purview”, INEC said.

“Our part, INEC assures the public that we are doing all we can to ensure a credible election.”

Recall that in 2015, Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso confirmed that underaged voters from the North were mobilised to vote out former President, Goodluck Jonathan, from office.
