Insecurity cannot exclude the North from 2015 elections – Atiku



atikuFormer vice president, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has dismissed rumors that there would not be elections in the north in 2015 as a result of the security situation in that part of the country.

The former vice-president, who faulted a statement credited to a commissioner of the Independent Electoral Commission (INEC) to the effect that “there would be no election in the North in 2015 on account of the security challenges,” said it was an inaccurate statement.

In Atiku Abubakar’s words: “Again, all these talks that there would be no election in the North on the account of Boko Haram insurgency is rubbish. I disagree with INEC on this issue,” he said.

He also spoke on the allegation that INEC and some PDP stalwarts were working to thwart the successful registration of the All Progressives Congress (APC), adding that “a private investigation exonerated him from the allegation.”

    @Yunusa….pls always consult your dictionary whenever you are writing both for public and private consumption,because its obvious you are having a serious problem with your vocabs.To annihilate means to wipe out,to completely destroy etc. To use it in the context you just did is an inecusable malappropism,though forgiveable.Be careful with the way you commit grammertical blunder.
