PostSubject: Don’t violate Electoral Act, APGA warns INEC   2015-01-01, 02:43

The All Progressives Grand Alliance
has challenged the Independent
National Electoral Commission to
comply strictly with the
constitution and the Electoral Act as
it prepares for the 2015 general
elections. The party also expressed
optimism that the New Year would
be “promising and filled with great
economic advancement, peaceful
political millieu and socio-religious
harmony.”
The National Director of Publicity in
APGA, Mr. Ifeanacho Oguejiofor, in a
New Year message on Wednesday
in Abuja, advised that instead of
provocative comments capable of
setting the country on fire,
politicians should make their
campaigns explicit and issue-
based, while their debates should
be factual and thought-provoking.”
He said, “Political parties should
woo the electorates for their votes
and jostle to win elections for
various elective positions in the
forthcoming 2015 general
elections; they should make their
campaigns explicit and issue-
based, their debates should be
factual and thought-provoking and
their criticisms sincere and
constructive for an enduring
democratic culture so that the
electorates will be able to make a
well informed choice as they cast
their votes.
“INEC should make all the votes
count, be zero-tolerant to election
rigging and adhere strictly to the
rules guiding the electoral conduct.
The commission should give all the
political parties a level-playing
field so that the winners that will
emerge after the 2015 general
elections will be an absolute
reflection of all the votes cast by
the electorates at the various
polling booths across Nigeria.”
Oguejiofor said, “It was incumbent
on INEC to ensure that the winners
at the election would be true
representatives of the people who
will serve the interest of Nigerians,
rather than that of a few privileged
individuals and godfathers.”
APGA specifically cautioned
Nigerians to guard against
provocative utterances, unlawful
acts and unpatriotic statements
capable of putting the corporate
existence of Nigeria into jeopardy.
The party noted that terrorism
should not be politicised, stressing
that Nigerians have the duty of
playing their part positively to
stamp out terrorism.
Oguejiofor said, “APGA wants all
Nigerians to be aware that the
present terrorist activities of the
Boko Haram sect is a national
malady which poses serious
challenge, great difficulties and
grievous threat to our national
security, economic development
and one sovereignty.
“Thus, APGA demands that all
Nigerians, no matter their state of
origin or place of abode, political
leaning or interest, religious
affiliation or association and other
sundry interests, should support,
co-operate and assist the security
agencies and the Federal
Government to overcome this
monster of violence, agent of
mayhem, behemoth of destruction
and gruesome death which has left
many Nigerian families desolate,
despondent and destitute in their
own country.”
