Resign over controversial Akwa Ibom primary, APC chieftain tells REC

The South-South Zonal Organising Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, Dr. Blessing Agbomhere, on Tuesday called for the resignation or outright sack of the Akwa Ibom State Resident Electoral Commissioner, Mr. Mike Igini, over his role in the controversial governorship and senatorial primary.

Continuing, the APC chieftain stressed that it was up to the members of the APC, not Igini, to dispute the primary election that produced the candidates forwarded by the party.This is even as he warned that if Igini had an axe to grind with former Minister of Niger Delta, Senator Godswill Akpabio, he should not drag other party members into their feud.

“Parties who participate in primary elections and are members of a political party are in the best position to disagree over the outcome of an election, not INEC. It is not in the place of Igini to dispute the election, except he is a member of the APC and a contestant in the said primary election.

This is even as he warned that if Igini had an axe to grind with former Minister of Niger Delta, Senator Godswill Akpabio, he should not drag other party members into their feud. “Parties who participate in primary elections and are members of a political party are in the best position to disagree over the outcome of an election, not INEC. “While it is the duty of a political party to notify INEC on its political activities, it cannot drag the Commission into coming to observe them.

Macdon explained that the suspect was no longer with the command but taken to court on June 20 by the DPP and remanded accordingly. “I, therefore, call on Igini to, without further delay, resign his position as Resident Electoral Commissioner in Akwa Ibom State. In the event that Igini refuses to resign, I call on the INEC Chairman, Professor Mahmood Yakubu, to sack Igini without hesitation in order to ensure that the political atmosphere in Akwa Ibom State does not degenerate into anarchy and the reputation of INEC is not reduced to that of a mad man, who has no shame or nothing to protect,” he charged.
