Kogi West rerun: Stakeholders begs INEC to improve performance


As the Saturday’s Kogi West senatorial rerun draws near, stakeholders have urged the Independent Electoral Commission to improve its level of preparation and conduct in order to avoid a repeat performance of the irregularities that characterised the November 16 elections.

Speakers at the INEC organised stakeholders forum held on Tuesday in Lokoja unanimously told the commission that the level of violence witnessed in the November 16 election across the state was shameful and should not be allowed to repeat itself on Saturday. Reverend Samuel Owolabi, the Director, National Issues of Christian Association of Nigeria, who went on his knees to plead with INEC said that “If the election will not be greeted with apathy on Saturday, the commission should in collaboration the security agencies ensure the safety of lives and property on Saturday.

“What happened last Saturday was nothing but a civil war, where guns were freely used on those they were meant to be protected by the security agencies, I’m kneeling before God and you INEC officials not to allow what happened in the November 16 election repeat itself, ” Owolabi begged INEC.
