“We must put a stop to this and do things properly and be fair to the President and don’t ridicule his office by bringing things not properly digested for him to sign.:

“The issue is about political interest of  different factions of the political elite working in cahoot with INEC. They  want to present Nigerians with a fait accompli through the ongoing primaries of the two major political parties. The President can see through this.”

Olawepo-Hashim explained further that “the solution as I have argued is simple.
Let primaries hold between now and August when the Executive leadership ,the Legislative leadership, INEC,and the party  leadership would have made input into an acceptable electoral act then President can sign.”

 “The electoral  act says primaries should  hold 180 days to election and 180 days is August  so why the stampede There must be transparency and fairness to all sides ,no one should ambush any one.I have been saying this since March,” he said.
