IPAC tasks political parties on sustenance of democracy, good governance
The Inter Party Advisory Council (IPAC), yesterday, asked political parties to embrace democratic tenets that would promote and sustain good governance in the country.
It stressed the need for the parties to pursue peace and harmony among them, maintaining that the association was not an opposition political group, but a platform for promoting good governance.
IPAC’s National Secretary, Yusuf Mamman Dantalle, stated this in Enugu while inaugurating its newly elected state Interim Management Committee (IMC).
Dantalle, who was accompanied by the National Publicity Secretary, Major Agbo, said they were in the state to see things for themselves and encourage virtues that could promote democracy.
He formerly inaugurated the newly elected Enugu State seven-man executive, including, Ken Ikeh of Allied Peoples Movement (APM) as Chairman, Dr. Ben Nwoye of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as Secretary and Augustine Nnamani of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as Publicity Secretary.
Others are, Nnaemeka Okoh of (AAC) as Financial Secretary, Edwin Alor of Accord Party (AP) as Treasurer, Mrs. Stella Chukwuma as Organising and Welfare Officer, while Elvis Ugwoke of Zenith Labour Party (ZLP), who was elected Youth Policy Advisor.
Dantalle expressed satisfaction with the conduct of the political parties in Enugu and urged them to “always pursue peaceful and harmonious existence.”
He explained that IPAC was not an opposition but “a platform that should always enhance dialogue and arbitrate among the political parties when the need arises.”
They also visited Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, during which the elected officials were introduced to him, just as they conveyed IPAC’s gratitude to the governor.
Ugwuanyi congratulated the officials and reaffirmed his commitment towards the promotion of peaceful existence among all parties, stressing the need for the political parties to always accommodate one another.
