Saraki is a drowning man— Oshiomhole

The All Progressives Congress (APC) is furious over the leakage of its official correspondence with the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, asking the electoral body to pay more attention to sensitive mails coming to it.

According to APC, it is not happy that the letter notifying it of the proposed dates for its primaries, which it sent to INEC in accordance to the Electoral Act, was leaked to the media

It would be recalled that the party was forced on Thursday to deny that it has fixed dates for its primaries.

The proposed time table for the primaries contained in a letter wriiten by the National Chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole to the INEC Chairman, Professor Mahmood Yakubu was published in a national daily.

The Acting National Publicity Secretary of the party, Yekini Nabena, while reacting in a statement on Friday, said the National Executive Committee of the party needs to approve the time table before it became authentic.

Nabena said: “Our attention has been drawn to a leaked letter the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole wrote to the Chairman, Independent National Electoral Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu informing the Commission of the schedule of the Congresses and Primaries to elect Party candidates for the 2019 General Elections.

“These leaks of our sensitive and confidential correspondence to INEC is becoming commonplace and totally unacceptable. We strongly request that INEC looks into its internal handling of official correspondence and put a stop to these leaks.

“While the leaked formal notification to INEC has been done by the APC pursuant to the provisions of Section 85 of the 2010 Electoral Act (as amended), we advise the general public particularly the media to wait for an official announcement from the Party as the leaked dates are subject to changes, if necessary.”
