The Independent National Electoral Commission has been urged not to compromise its integrity during the general elections by Chief Ralphs Nwosu, the national chairman of the African Democratic Congress.
In a statement released on Sunday in Abuja, he made the announcement.
He pleaded with the INEC to uphold their commitment to continually improving the election process and system in order to walk the path of honor.
He said; “It smacks of gross irresponsibility for the commission and its staff to attempt to mess with the much prized BVAS and servers in spite of the commitment and understanding of all stakeholders and our international friends.”
To aid in the nation’s healing and the advancement of its democracy, Nwosu asked the commission to make every effort to complete its work successfully.
He urged, “They must not at this time collude with unpatriotic elements and self-serving politicians to compromise the integrity of the commission and our democracy.
“The scandalous flirtation between some of its ad-hoc staff and principal officers is capable of discrediting the commission’s effort.”
He exhorted the young people to make sure they occupy their proper place in the comity of countries.
While praising INEC, Nwosu encouraged it to conduct the election with impartiality and neutrality.
He added; “The voices that spoke so loudly and clearly cannot be allowed to be drowned by the evil machination of a few that had put Nigeria in darkness since independence.
“The unfolding incidents around the many regions are simply unfortunate and near despicable.
“The noticeable and embarrassing irregularities appear suspicious to the citizens of Nigeria and to many international observers.
“The youths and majority of our citizens have made so much sacrifice for this day. It behoves INEC and President Muhammadu Buhari to take whatever steps necessary to correct all abnormalities.”
