The leaders accused him of having ethnic agenda with the commission’s recent creation of additional 30 000 polling units in the country, reports The Punch.
The SNPA leaders, who were reacting to the distribution of the 30 000 polling units that allocated 21 615 polling units to the three zones of the north and 8 412 polling units to the three zones of the southern states, said the action was not justifiable .
They called on on President Goodluck Jonathan, to without further delay reorganise the composition and structure of INEC, to provide Nigerians the platform for free and fair elections.
