Rowdy Session, As INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, Escapes From Stakeholders Meeting

There was mid drama at the Stakeholders meeting organised by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, ahead of the November 16, Governorship election, in the Bayelsa State, as Elders from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and All Progressives Congress, APC, engaged in a heated argument, that resulted in a rowdy session.
The Stakeholders meeting, which had in attendance the National Chairman of the Commission, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, came to an abrupt end when the Chairman of the PDP Elders Forum, Chief Francis Doukpola, alleged that the last Presidential and National elections in the State, were the worst elections conducted in the State, and INEC has not done anything to correct it.
He also accused the APC of violence, in Nembe Basambiri Community of Nembe LGA, which resulted to most of the indigenes fleeing the communities and living as IDPs in other neighbouring communities.

According to Dr. Doukpolagha: “We are busy talking about 2015 elections, and we forgot that we had elections in 2019. The the Presidential and National assembly elections in the State were the worst elections organised by INEC.
“Because of that elections, part of a community is living in Internally Displaced Camp, IDP, because they do not belong to a particular party which INEC has not done anything about it, am talking of the people of Nembe Bassambiri.”
In a swift reaction, a Stakeholder of the APC, Barr. Dennis Otiotio, shouted him down, accusing him of lying, and part of the people causing troubles in the State, rather than playing a neutral role.

The INEC National Chairman and other Dignitaries, including top Security Agencies, hurriedly left the venue of the programme.
Earlier speaking, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu charged all the political parties participating in the November 16, Bayelsa State Governorship election, to conduct themselves and their supporters, to ensure a violence free and credible election.
According to the INEC boss, Bayelsa and Kogi States are major elections for INEC, as well as the nation, Nigeria, saying that, that is why INEC is somehow breaking most tradition, by holding the meeting with Stakeholders one month to the election, instead of a few days to the election, as have been the prediction of the Commission.
He further disclosed that 45 political parties are fielding Candidates for the Governorship election, as against 20 political parties that fielded Candidates in 2015; adding that, the purpose for convening the meeting was to assure of the Commission’s readiness to conduct a free, fair, and credible election.

He said: “We want to assure all Stakeholders that the Commission is committed to a free and fair process. We shall maintain our integrity, and I have said over and over, and I would not be tired of repeating myself, that INEC is not a political party. We have no Candidate in the Bayelsa State election.”
