The director of the Abuja School of Social and Political Thoughts, Sam Amadi, has called on the National Assembly to probe the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC’s expenditures during the 2023 general election.

Amadi spoke at an event organised by the Labour Party to mark this year’s Democracy Day and was contained in a statement by the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Obiora Ifoh.

He also charged INEC to explain why its server failed during the 2023 presidential election.

The public affairs analyst also noted that the electoral umpire should be able to explain to Nigerians why its results were not collated and declared electronically as provided in the INEC electoral Act as amended.

Amadi blamed INEC for failing to prosecute the 2023 presidential election and said the Supreme Court determined its outcome.

“The failure of the INEC server during the presidential election with all the money given to them. It is appalling that no one spoke about the huge amount of money given Mahmood Yakubu and all the INEC commissioners to prosecute a failed election, failed because the Supreme Court has to step in to determine the result of elections.”

He noted that the ongoing electoral reform must reject the inconsistency of allowing the presidency to appoint the INEC chairman.

Amadi stressed that this gives room for election rigging before the votes are cast.
