Prof. Iwu’s Actions Too
Dangerous For Silence!
Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission Dr.
Maurice Iwu has described INEC critics as politicians looking
for excuses for their abysmal failures in 2007 general
The Vice President Atiku Abubaka last week stated that the
Nigerian people and the electorates have no confidence in INEC,
as INEC will not deliver free and fair election come 2007. Prof.
Iwu's response to the statement credited to vice president Atiku
Abubaka is gathering a major concern to the nation’s political
system. Instead of the INEC chairman to address the issue
pointed out by Atiku, he was going about lashing out the vice
president, by saying that Atiku should go and take care of his
problems, and leave his commission alone. That is not right; is
not fair, for person of INEC chairman to make such embarrassing
In as much as I am concerned the INEC chairman Prof. Maurice Iwu
is among those politicians heating up the polity. Every Nigerian
knows that the Independent National Electoral Commission is not
independent as applied by its name. Iwu’s attitudes show that
2007 election is a conclusive issue waiting for its results to
be announced. As an INEC boss, Iwu is meant to know that people
will always criticize his commission.
Federal government should call the INEC boss Prof. Iwu to order;
because he is not a politician to be attacking people whenever
and however he likes. Caution should guide the INEC chairman’s
lips and utterances. Nigerians see you all the time on the pages
of newspaper exchanging words with politicians, this has to stop
right now if you want people to have confidence and trust in
