Emefiele: SERAP Asks INEC To Move Electoral Materials From CBN Premises

The Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) has requested the chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof. Mahmood Yakub , to move sensitive electoral materials away from the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).

Emefiele: SERAP Asks INEC To Move Electoral Materials From CBN Premises

The group made the request as a result of the political ambition of the apex bank governor, Godwin Emefiele.

The CBN’s governor is among the over 20 aspirants who bought the presidential nomination form of the All Progressives Congress.

Speaking via its handle on Tuesday, SERAP urged the INEC chairman to move the electoral materials away from CBN to a politically neutral position so as to “remove the risks of unlawful interference” as a result of the bank’s governor political ambition.

The reads: “We urge the Chairman of INEC Prof. Mahmood Yakubu to urgently consider moving sensitive election materials from the CBN to a politically neutral location, to remove the risks of unlawful interference, following the involvement of the CBN governor in partisan politics.”

There have been widespread criticisms of the CBN governor after three interest groups – the Rice Farmers Association of Nigeria, Friends of Emefiele and Emefiele Support Group – paid N100m for the APC presidential expression of interest and nominations forms for him.

Odunews.com also confirmed that Emefiele had registered as a member of the All Progressives Congress in Delta state since February 2021.
