Attacks on INEC facilities won’t stop elections, Buhari vows

By Our Reporter

Despite recent attacks on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) facilities in parts of the country, President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday June 1, 2021, vowed to give all it would take to secure future elections.

The President who spoke on Tuesday after he received briefing from INEC chairman, Prof Mahmood Yakubu, on series of attacks on facilities of the electoral body was seen unhappy over the burning of INEC installations.

The President, who said his administration would invest more into empowering the INEC to ensure no election fails, assured he would not want to give his traducers the impression that he has a motive to stay beyond his term of office.


According to a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, he said he would ensure INEC is able to carry out its duties “so that no one would say we don’t want to go, or that we want a third term. There will be no excuse for failure. We’ll meet all INEC’s demands”.


He sternly warned those bent on destroying the country through promoting insurrection and burning down critical national assets that a rude shock awaits them and very soon too

“I receive daily security reports on the attacks, and it is very clear that those behind them want this administration to fail,” Buhari said.

“Insecurity in Nigeria is now mentioned all over the world. All the people who want power, whoever they are, you wonder what they really want. Whoever wants the destruction of the system will soon have the shock of their lives. We’ve given them enough time,” he reiterated.
