The National Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Professor Mahmood Yakubu, has been accused of corruption, and in response, the Coalition of South East Youth Leaders (COSEYL) has issued a challenge for him to demonstrate his innocence by walking the streets of Abuja without security.
The head of INEC had been under fire from the opposition for allegedly altering the results of the 2023 presidential elections.
Nonetheless, Yakubu had refuted the claims, maintaining that the election that yielded Bola Tinubu was conducted fairly.
In a statement released on Saturday, COSEYL President General Goodluck Ibem challenged INEC Chairman Mahmood Yakubu to “walk on the streets of Abuja on foot without security for 30 minutes if his conscience is clear that he conducted a free and fair 2023 general elections using the Bimodal Verification Accreditation System, BVAS for all the elections.”
As a public challenge to Prof. Yakubu, we would say, “Conscience, they say, fears no charge, and truth, they say, is an open sore.
“If Yakubu does not accept this challenge, it will tell us who he is and what he did in the general elections,” the statement reads.
