CNPP Backs IPAC, Wants Amina Zakari Replaced

The Conference of Nigeria Political Parties (CNPP) has thrown its weight behind the call by the Inter-Party Advisory Council (IPAC) on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to immediately rescind the appointment of Hajiya Amina Zakari as the chairperson of the Committee on National Collation Centre.

The umbrella body of all registered political parties and associations in Nigeria in a statement issued by its Secretary General, Chief Willy Ezugwu urged “the electoral umpire to listen to its own advisory organ like IPAC.
“We are taken aback that an electoral body like INEC, which is supposed to be independent, has carried on as an arm of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) while the ruling party has continued to defend the action as though it was consulted before the appointment was made. 

What is at stake at the moment is not about which administration appointed her into INEC, neither is her competence the issues. What is paramount now is the integrity of the electoral outcomes as the transparency and fairness of the process is the basis of the growing rejection of her appointment by the stakeholders. 

“The CNPP, like all other interested parties in the forthcoming general elections, has no confidence in the promises by the Independent National Electoral Commission that it is ready conduct free and fair elections if the legitimate concerns of political parties are not addressed . 
“The best proof that INEC has no ulterior motive in the appointment of Hajiya Amina Zakari, is to listen to the stakeholders and immediately do the needful. More so, when INEC has had a history of extremely controversial electoral outcomes in recent past as seen in Ekiti and Osun states”, the CNPP said. 
Speaking on the siege on the media by the Nigerian Army, the CNPP warned that “democracy will be the ultimate loser and tyranny triumph when freedom of expression is clamped down upon. 
“In a democracy, there are legitimate channels through which whatever issues can be resolved other than the gestapo attacks on agents of free speech like media houses”, the CNPP added.

    topic to be really something which I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complicated and very broad for me.
