The Action Democratic Party (ADP) has rejected the timetable and schedule of activities for the 2019 general elections which was released by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

This was made known to newsmen by the National chairman of the party, Yabaji Yusuf Sani.

He condemned the scheduling of the presidential election before the governorship poll.

Sani said: “The order of the elections as released by the INEC is one thing we are not comfortable with because once you have a president sitting there, then he calls the shots.

“He can have his way against the wishes of the people of the country. So, this is one area we are not comfortable with and I think that area can be looked into.”

INEC has fixed Saturday, February 16, 2019 as the date for Presidential and National Assembly elections, while Governorship and State Assembly elections would hold on Saturday, March 2, 2019.
