Be neutral, independent in discharging duties, group urges INEC
Ahead of today’s supplementary polls, a non-governmental organisation, United Global Resolve For Peace (UGRFP) has urged the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to be neutral and independent in the discharge of their duties.
It also called on the electoral body to train its staff particularly the ad-hoc staff and to sensitise the electorate on voter’s education. In a statement signed yesterday in Abuja by its Executive Director, Shalom Olaseni, they regretted the manner in which elections that was held on March 9 in some states had remained inconclusive, adding that there have been much more inconclusive elections than a cumulative of all the elections ever held between 1999 and 2015.
Olaseni added that most of the states where elections were declared inconclusive are the stronghold of the opposition party and few other states where the ruling party, APC, appear to have lost its grip on their mandate, adding that this has been mooted in several quarters that the INEC played to the script of the APC.
