2023: INEC Chairman, Mahmoud speaks on joining presidential race

National Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Professor Mahmood Yakubu, has dismissed reports and calls urging him to join the 2023 presidential election as preposterous, saying he would never do so.

Professor Yakubu as chief election umpire has been overseeing preparations for the 2023 general polls since 2019.

The statement read: “Our attention has been drawn to innuendoes in certain quarters that Nigerians should not be surprised if the INEC Chairman joins the Presidential race or urging him to do so.

“It is a preposterous proposition. It will not happen.

“The Chairman remains an umpire committed to free, fair and credible elections.
