The Presidency has replied PDP, over allegation that INEC official, Amina Zakari has a connection with President Buhari. In an announcement discharged on Friday evening, the senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, said the PDP had proceeded with their “baseless” allegations against the individual of Amina Zakari.
Remember that Zakarai’s assignment as the administrator of the INEC collation centre for the 2019 presidential poll, was welcomed with severe disapproval after accusation that she is President Buhari’s niece.

Shehu in this announcement, said PDP has again lied as Zakari & President Buhari are by any means connected.
“In their desperation, they forget that it was the PDP government that appointed her in the first place and they keep lying, as they have been caught doing on so many issues, by imputing a blood relationship between her and President Muhammadu Buhari.”
“President Buhari and Commissioner Amina Zakari don’t share a family relationship. An inter-marriage occurred in their extended families, so the imputation of blood relationship between the President and the electoral commissioner is a simple lie;”
What is much progressively inquisitive about all the complain originating from the PDP is that they, as a decision party selected Mrs Zakari, due to her very own dignity & made her an electotoral magistrate. She served so well with unique excellence as this can be confirmed from the evidence that President Buhari affirmed the endorsement that she be reappointed, as he did other PDP chosen people for 2nd-term of 4 years.
PDP, consequently, has no ethical ideal to continue bugging this persevering mother except if they have a secret plan.
By this announcement, the PDP is liable of scoring an own goal & two, of bugging a guiltless subject based on a lie, unadulterated and basic.
