“If PDP has begun to cry wolf where there was none on INEC chairman, then they should be set for louder lamentations. The wailing wailers,” Adesina tweeted on Tuesday, July 1, 2015.

The PDP had demanded Zakari’s removal after alleging that she was too close to the Presidency and that her appointment reeked of bias.
