Adams recently called for Jega’s sack, citing the alleged lopsided PVC distribution, introduction of card reader and creation of ‘bogus’ polling units in the North. National Publicity Secretary of the ACF, Muhammad Ibrahim, said in the statement that the call “was laughable and shows Chief Adams pedestrian understanding of the Nigerian Constitution and the Electoral Law.”He said the assertion made by Adams that card readers have never contributed, or added value, to any major election in the world was meaningless. The statement said that the claims made by Adams that the use of card readers was an attempt ‘cleverly being injected’ by Jega to cause delay, confuse voters and prevent majority of voters in exercising their franchise on that day, “was not only parochial but portrays him as someone seeking political relevance.”
