Professor Mahmooh Yakubu has overtaken Professor Maurice Iwu as the worst chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC in Nigeria’s history, according to many Nigerians on social media.
Prof Iwu, who was the INEC chairman during former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s first term had been earlier awarded the medal of the one who conducted the most terrible elections in Nigeria – However, a latest survey has put Prof Yakubu ahead of him.
With the spate of inconclusiveness of elections under Mahmood, electoral violence and mass rigging, some Nigerians say, “never did they think, an INEC chairman worse than Iwu, would ever surface.”
Who is the WORST Inec Chairman in the history of Nigeria among these two PROFESSORS!

This isn't up for a debate nah.
Mr. Yakubu is the definition and SI unit of worst, incompetence, remote control strategy and inconclusive election.
While the other one Maurice Iwu did experimented on the SI unit.
Both are magical and legendary nevertheless https://t.co/kXkr3YJend

Professor Maurice Iwu is a saint when compared to Professor Mahmood Yakubu.
I am not celebrating mediocrity, but I actually thought after the exploits Jega made as the Chairman of INEC, we should get someone better. Sadly, we are back to square one.
Should God come down to help?

For those saying that Maurice Iwu is the worst @inecnigeria chairman ever:
1. How many cancellations under Iwu?
2. How many INCONCLUSIVE results under Iwu?
3. How many reruns/supplementary elwctions under Iwu
4. How much violence and how many deaths under Iwu?
