All Progressives Congress (APC) national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, has claimed that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) was biased against the ruling party and worked against it during the just concluded general elections and the process leading to the polls.
Oshiomhole made the claim during an interview with Maupe Ogun-Yusuf on Channels Television’s Hard Copy programme.
The claim is coming despite the fact that APC won the presidential election, won more seats at the both chambers of the National Assembly as well as more governorship and House of Assembly seats across the federation.
However, Oshiomhole who maintained that INEC was grossly biased against the APC, said the electoral body conducted the elections in a way that put the ruling party at a disadvantage.
“I have huge reservations about the way INEC conducted this election. INEC bias against APC is so clear,” he said.
“INEC was biased even in the way it dealt with our primaries, INEC was biased in the way in which it selectively used the card readers or the non-use of card readers in some states where it suits them,” he said.
Accusing INEC of contradicting itself in the manner the elections were conducted, Oshiomhole argued that the non-use of card readers in some areas worked against APC, claiming that in some states where the party clearly won, INEC employed the non-use of card readers to rig the party out.
