ABUJA: The Labour Party, LP, said President Muhammadu Buhari made a right choice in the appointment of Hajia Amina Bala Zakari as the Acting Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.
National Chairman of LP, Alhaji Abdulkadir Abdulsalam, who made the commendation Thursday in Abuja, however berated the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, over its criticisms of the appointment
Abdulsalam noted that all the opposition politics of the PDP so far are not reliable, “because they are doing it out of fallacy and jealousy.”
According to him, “The Labour Party in all ramification and based on our assessment is congratulating Hajia Amina Bala Zakari on her appointment as the Acting Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) by President Muhammadu Buhari.
“We have related, work and interacted with her at the commission, we have assessed her pedigree and we are convinced that the President made the right decision in appointing her.
“This does not make her partisan, or supportive of any political party, unless the PDP is not serious about the so call opposition. That is not how to do opposition. Opposition was not based on just criticism on every petty and negligible issue.
“All the opposition politics of the PDP are not reliable, because they are doing it out of fallacy and jealousy.
“The PDP appointed all sorts of manners of people even when majority of Nigerians believe they were wrong.
“On this appointment, we are supportive and congratulate her. We are ready to work with her and I would call on all political parties to work with her to consolidate the nation’s democracy.
