CUPP alleges plots to remove INEC chair

The Coalition of United Political Parties has raised the alarm over an alleged fresh plot to remove Professor Mahmood Yakubu as the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission in a bid to undermine the 2023 general election.

The PUNCH reports that the coalition, which comprises the majority of the opposition political parties in the country, made the allegation during a press conference on Wednesday in Abuja.

The CUPP Chairman, Ikenga Ugochinyere, who spoke on behalf of the opposition parties, said the coalition had also uncovered fresh plots to deactivate the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System from being used in the election and ultimately stop electronic transmission of results at the polls.

Ugochinyere alleged that the plot was being spearheaded by a top member of the ruling All Progressives Congress in the South-East region of the party.

The coalition had during its last press conference fingered Governor Hope Uzodimma of Imo State in an alleged voter registration fraud in the state, prompting a response from INEC.
