At a meeting of the leadership of the upper and lower chambers of the National Assembly with the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Chairman, Mahmoud Yakubu, Dogara stated, “As leaders of the National Assembly, we are committed to appropriating whatever is needed within the confines of the resources of the nation for INEC to be able to actualise this and that is why this meeting is important.
“However, personally, I have some questions that I intend to raise, but I will raise these in the process of discussion because it appears that we are treating this 2019 election as an emergency, which it ought not to be so, that is just my concern”.
