Polls shift: INEC must not take us for granted, says Buhari at APC caucus meeting

President Muhammadu Buhari , on Monday , said that the Independent National Electoral Commission, must not take Nigerians for granted .

He said this at the All Progressives Congress National Caucus meeting holding in Abuja .
In the meeting , monitored on
Channels Television , Buhari said , “ The constitution and laws protected INEC but they must not take us for granted .

“INEC had all the time and the all the resources , they had, they wanted and then to wait only for six hours to cancel the vote ? Surely , the reason such incompetence manifested itself has to be explained to the nation .

“ After the election , we have to know what happened and who is responsible .

“ Otherwise , our efforts to make sure this system, we voluntarily accept is not making progress.
“ What is the use if we accept incompetence?

He added , “ If for example , the National Assembly refused to approve what they wanted , then INEC could have some moral reasons , why it couldn ’ t perform .

“ If the time , constitutionally , four years after was not obeyed by the government and the system, INEC would have a case but we do not understand why this happened and we would have to go into details after the election , why this happened .

Speaking on his departure to Abuja on Saturday , President Buhari said he had to break his protocol routine to hasten his travel back to Abuja, after he was told about the postponement of the polls .

“I had to leave my immediate constituency and come back to Abuja immediately because I was told of INEC ’ s decision at quarter to five in the morning .

“ The way, security and other protocol mobilise people ahead and leave them behind , when I’ m moving , all the same , I had to tell them , I’ m leaving and I left. ”

  2. Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a
    sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said
    “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed
    the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside
    and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
