A lawyer, Mr Festus Keyamo, has criticised the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for asking Mrs Amina Zakari to recuse herself from her appointment as the chairperson of the Collation Centre Committee for the general elections.

Reacting to the controversy trailing the appointment of the national commissioner by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), he condemned the allegations of impartiality by the opposition party.

“We are stakeholders too, PDP has no right to impose on the nation what its own sense of fairness is,” said the spokesman for the Buhari Presidential Campaign Council during his appearance on Sunday Politics.

Keyamo also faulted the insinuations that the reactions of the All Progressives Congress (APC) were attempts to defend the electoral umpire.

He insisted that the ruling party was in support of credible elections and the Federal Government would ensure a free and fair process as promised by President Muhammadu Buhari.

“We are not here, and let us make it very clear, to defend the position of INEC because INEC is there to also defend themselves,” the APC member explained.

“We did not make the appointment, we did not put her in the position she is now. We are only here to make the point that PDP has no right to dictate to the nation how we should run our elections and run our democracy.”
