Osuntokun explained that the INEC chairman had done sufficient damage to the nation’s electoral process and should to made to answer for his actions.

He said the arrest and ongoing prosecution of the Adamawa State Resident Electotal Commissioner for his actions during the last elections, should serve as template for Yakubu’s prosecution because what the Adamawa State REC did was what the INEC Chairman did on a national scale.

Osuntokun noted that reports from all election observer groups at home and abroad were unanimous in their reports that the election was greatly floored and the outcome of the Presidential election as declared by INEC fell short of international standards.
