Retired Group Capt. John Ojikutu, a security expert, has said 60 per cent of INEC staff that superintended the past elections which were equally postponed might still be in the system.

“It is high time they were identified and weeded out of the system,” Ojikutu said in his reaction to the postponement of the general elections by INEC.

According to him, from 2011, 2015 and 2019, the reasons for rescheduling of elections had always been logistics.

He said, “It has always been logistics problems since I can remember way back in 2011 when Jega came on board. Has INEC learnt any lessons from the experiences of the past including the 2015 experiences?” he asked.

“There could still be no less than 60% of these in the systems; Who are those that were managing the INEC logistics in the past and how many of them are still in the process? Are there any intelligence about any from the experience of the past? What has INEC done to attend to these experiences?

The leftovers in the systems that were part of the experience of the past could still be the clogs in the process; why would INEC not identify them and remove them,” he asked.
