Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti state, has chided President Buhari for appointing Prof. Mahmood Yakubu as Chairman the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

He said it is a clear indication that the President still sees himself as a leader of the Hausas and not Nigerians.

According to Guardian Newspapers, Fayose said "Nigeria has entered a one chance bus and it remains to be seen who will save the country from its sectional President.”

He also said “Shouldn’t he have considered someone from either South-East, South-South or South-West  as Chairman of the Electoral Commission now that we have a President from the North?”

“For reasons of perception, equity and fairness, don’t we have credible people from the Southern part of Nigeria that can conduct credible elections as INEC Chairman? Or do we assume that the 2019 elections have already been won and lost by the appointment of this Hausa/Fulani professor as INEC chairman? Or isn’t it regrettable that even in 2015, it is only in PDP controlled States that elections are being upturned?” Fayose asked.
