All Progressives Congress (APC) says Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) cannot nullify election it didn’t conduct.
Publicity Secretary of the Party Bolaji Abdullahi said this on Wednesday while reacting to letter written by chairman of the Reformed APC, Buba Galadima calling on INEC to nullify June 23 National convention that produced Adams Oshiomhole because it is flaw and undemocratic.
Abdullahi described Galadima letter as “ill-conceived and futile.”
The APC spokesman said the R-APC leader does have not a reason to complain because he did not contest for any position at the party’s national elective convention.
“In response to colleagues asking for reaction to a letter said to have been written to INEC by Alhaji Buba Galadima, I will like to point out that the action is ill-conceived and therefore futile,” Abdullahi said.
“INEC has no powers to cancel an election it did not organise. Secondly, the man calling for the cancellation of the convention did not contest for any position at the convention therefore has no locus to complain about its outcome.
“Besides, if candidate was not happy with the election process at the convention, they should petition the appeals committee. INEC cannot help them.”
