Buhari Support Organization (BSO), the umbrella body of all voluntary groups working for the election of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari, has warned against any attempt to change the leadership of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Such alteration, it said, would amount to tampering with the credibility of the elections and the independence of the commission.

The group also alerted to plots by President Goodluck Jonathan and his supporters to bring back the inglorious days of the Association for Better Nigeria (ABN) by using the courts to scuttle the elections.

Addressing a news conference in Abuja, BSO’s Director of Media, Dr. Chidia Maduekwe said the campaign against INEC by paid commentators and supporters of Jonathan was aimed at tampering with the conduct of the election and returning the country to the days of June 12 when the election of Chief MKO Abiola was annulled.

Maduekwe also alerted to a possible legal plan to consolidate several cases about the election and candidates still pending in court, by pro-government sympathizers that might seek injunctions to stop the elections until such cases are resolved.

He said part of the propaganda would be to force the Chairman of INEC, Prof. Attahiru Jega to resign or be forced to proceed on terminal leave and be replaced by another northern Muslim professor who will carry out the bidding of the government and its agents.

He said: “It has become imperatives to ask Mr. President to rein in his aides if he must be seen to walk his talk that his ambition is not worth any spill of human blood.  His aides and associates are disingenuously currently working at cross-purposes to this his favourite cliché by daily fanning the ambers of hate, pursuance of death wish and even going as far as stalking of GMB outside the shores of this country”.
