2019 Elections: We Are Not Sacking Amina Zakari – INEC Clarifies

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has come out to say that it has no intention of removing Mrs. Amina Zakari as the chairman of the collation center committee. According to INEC’s director of voter education and publicity, Oluwole Osaze-Uzzi, Mrs. Zakari is only in charge of the physical structure “The chairman of INEC by virtue of the electoral act is the returning officer of the country for the presidential election. It is he who decides the validity of votes and any issues in the election” Osaze-Uzzi said Zakari’s committee is primarily “in charge of welfare.” “She was also very involved in negotiating with the ICC management in 2015 for the use of the facility so her duty is to ensure the facility is ready. She has no role whatsoever with the process of collation.”  Photo Credit: Getty
