Nigerians on the platform of Citizens For Good Governance today, November 8, stormed the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) headquarters to demand the immediate resignation of the chairman, Mahmood Yakubu.

The protesters alleged that the electoral umpire had connived with the All Progressives Congress (APC) to print fake INEC result sheets ahead of the Rivers rerun election scheduled for December10, 2016.

The group also accused the Mr Yaukubu, Amina Zakari, Rotimi Amaechi, Magnus Abe, Dakuku Peterside and APC of connivance in releasing certified true copies of INEC result sheets to the printers who produced the fake election result sheets.

It described the act as a "coup against democracy and an invitation to another 1983 wild-wild-west".

The protesters, therefore, insisted that INEC chairman and Amina Zakari must resign to save Nigeria's democracy.
