Former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Olabode George, has advocated the probe and removal of the Independent National Electoral Commission’s (INEC) Director of ICT, Mr. Femi Odubiyi, owing to his closeness to the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
George, the Atona Oodua of Yorubaland, said that INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, should explain to Nigerians how Odubiyi, a former Commissioner for Science and Technology in Lagos State, who is loyal to Tinubu, found his way into INEC as head of ICT.
He, however, called for a comprehensive investigation that should involve all government security apparatus “to get to the bottom of the intriguing matter of national interest,” stating that no culpable hand, no matter how highly placed, should be spared of appropriate punishment.
“I call on all security apparatus of government to quickly wade into this matter by inviting Odubiyi to explain whatever role he has played, as well as tell Nigerians how he got into INEC ICT unit, being a commissioner in Lagos State.
The masquerade must be unveiled. This unholy alliance that has pushed our country towards precipice must be thoroughly checked and nipped in the bud,” he said.
