Afenifere, the Yoruba Socio-Political Organization has demanded President Muhammadu Buhari to immediately sack the chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Mahmood Yakubu and other top electoral officials.

This call according to the group through its National Leader, Chief Ayo Adebanjo is as a result of the lack of trust the group has on the Electoral Umpire.

The elder statesman while speaking at Toru-Orua hometown of Bayelsa State Governor, Hon.Sariake Dickson during the burial ceremony of the Governor’s mother, Mrs. Goldcoast Dickson called on Buhari to act fast.

“We have said it before that we don’t have any trust in INEC as it is presently constituted, in fact we are of the view that the whole team should be disbanded” he said.

Chief Adebanjo further explained that the group’s stand hinges on the advocacy on having a free and fair election. He also reiterated the group’s devotion to continue demanding for the country to be restructured.
