The Unified Nigerian Youth Forum (UNYF) has said those calling for the resignation of the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof. Yakubu Mahmood despite his giant strides in the area of deploying cutting edge technology such as Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) for credible, fair and transparent elections are nothing but enemies of the country who did not wish it well.

The President UNYF, Comrade Abdulsalam Moh’d Kazeem stated this during a press  conference held in Kaduna on the 21st, October 2022.

According to him the people calling for the sack of the Electoral  body boss are masquerading as promoting the interest of the north and Nigeria, but sadly working for the enemies of the nation, saying this persons have continued to falsely accused and demand the resignation and sack of the INEC Boss for carrying out his mandate.

Comrade Abdulsalam Moh’d Kazeem said deploying cutting edge technology such as Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) for credible, fair and transparent elections as well as voter mobilisation and enlightenment are feat that has never been witnessed in the  electoral process in the country.

He expressed dismay that  these enemies of the Nation
Continued to falsely accused and demand the resignation and sack of the INEC Boss for carrying out his mandate, adding that those behind this charade are nothing but paid agents and goons of selfish and unpatriotic politicians seeking to manipulate next years general elections at all cost.

UNYF dispelled   the rumours making rounds that the INEC Boss and his management team have morally compromised because of pressure from political parties to deactivate BVAS.

“For the record, please note that; BVAS and all the electoral reforms currently in place have been approved by President Muhammadu Buhari and the APC majority National Assembly. It is inconceivable to say that the APC or any political party is pressuring INEC.

“It is again not true that INEC  and indeed Prof. Yakubu Mahmood has been pressured by anybody to deactivate or stop the use of the BVAS they introduced in fulfilment of the president’s promise of delivering a transparent election.

” INEC is established by law and has a law guiding its activities. No individual can wake up and decide to deactivate the use of BVAS when the law says it should be deployed.

“Those who make allegations like this are out to tarnish the reputation of the Independent National Electoral Commission and that of its indefatigable Chairman. Nigerians must not fall to such antics, especially now that the general elections are at hand, Politicians, are jittery and will do/say anything to make noise

“Nigerians should, therefore, commend and support INEC towards discharging their mandate next year without paying attention to naysayers who are out to destabilize the country with their concocted lies.” he said.
