FCT, Abuja – The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has criticised the Independent National Electoral Commission Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, for promising to deliver credible governorship elections on Saturday, March 11.

In a meeting with Resident Electoral Commissioners, Prof Yakubu promised to ensure the strict use of the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System and vowed that elections will reflect the wishes of Nigerians.
