Orbih, who was speaking in an interview in Benin on Friday described the statement, credited to the INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, as disturbing and worrisome.
However, carpeting the INEC chief, Orbih said that the position taken by INEC if implemented, would encourage “the loser to disrupt the election to prevent the declaration of the result’’.
According to him, the position of the law is that concluded election results must be declared.
“INEC and the security agencies must ensure adequate security during and after the election,’’ Orbih stated.
He argued that Nigerians had become tired of INEC conducting inconclusive elections, noting that INEC should synergize with security agencies to forestall election disruption.
“INEC should be re-assuring voters that they have the capacity to conduct free and fair elections and not thinking of disruptions in an election yet to be conducted.
