Conscience Rights and Conflict Resolution (CHRCR) has charged the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to live up to its constitutional responsibilities by creating a level-playing ground for all stakeholders in the Kogi State governorship election holding today.

The Executive Director, Idris Abdul, in a statement, equally urged the political parties, their candidates and supporters to desist from making inflammatory and unguarded statements that could trigger violence before, during and after the election.

“We charge all security personnel involved in this election to be professional and live above board and protect the interest of the nation at large.

“We, however, call on them to deal decisively with trouble makers, as an attack on one is an attack on all,” Abdul stated.

He admonished his colleagues in the civil society organisations, development partners and professional associations as well as the international community, who would be observing the election, to abide by the code of conduct of the elections.

Abdul equally called on the media to abide by the ethics of their profession and not to be involved in sensational and speculative reportage.

He advised the citizens, especially the eligible voters, not to sell their votes or accept gratification as a basis for voting, as the consequence of buying and selling of votes could be monumental in the long run.
