The Coalition of United Political Parties has expressed concern about an alleged new plot to depose Professor Mahmood Yakubu from his position as the head of the Independent National Electoral Commission in an effort to sabotage the general election of 2023.
According to reports, the coalition, which includes the majority of the opposition political parties in the nation, reportedly made the accusation during a news conference on Wednesday in Abuja.
Ikenga Ugochinyere, the chairman of the CUPP, who spoke on behalf of the opposition parties, claimed that the coalition had also discovered new schemes to disrupt the electronic transmission of election results at the polls and deactivate the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System.
Ugochinyere claimed that a senior member of the All Progressives Congress, the party in power, was behind the conspiracy in the South-East region of the party.
This comes after in its most recent press conference, the coalition had implicated Imo State Governor Hope Uzodimma in a claim of voter registration fraud in the state, drawing a response from INEC.
