Abdusalam Abubakar-Led Peace Committee Meets INEC Chairman Over Osun Elections

Abubakar

A former Head of State, Abdulsalam Abubakar is currently meeting with the chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Professor Mahmood Yakubu.

According to reports, the meeting is centered on the rerun election scheduled to take place in Osun State on Thursday.

The meeting, which is been held behind closed doors at Enugu Hall, Transcorp Hilton Hotel in Abuja, also has Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Matthew Kukah in attendance

Details of the meeting are still sketchy as at the time of this report.

On Sunday, INEC had declared the election inconclusive.

In recent years, Abdulsalam has earned a reputation for stepping in when results of elections tend to portend negative consequences for peace and stability in the country. In 2015, the Peace Committee he headed prevailed on former President Goodluck Jonathan to concede defeat in the presidential election before the official announcement of the result by INEC.
