The leadership of National Consultative Front, NCFront, an emergent non partisan, citizens led, pan Nigerian leadership group in Nigeria, mobilising to create a new Nigeria, has expressed a strong disapproval and condemnation for the electoral inducement uncovered by its Monitors in a viral video, where agents and stalwarts of one of the dominant political parties were seen exchanging monies and Ankara clothing materials for Permanent Voters cards, PVCs of voters, ahead of the Saturday governorship elections in Edo State
In a statement issued at the weekend by the Head of Public Affairs Bureau of the Front, Dr Tanko Yunusa, the Body of Fresh breed leaders of Conscience in Nigeria threatened to drag the defaulting Party and its governorship candidate before the international court of Justice and the international community at large, if these manipulative and provocative acts continue during the Saturday Elections in any form, especially as what is termed in the Nigerian parlance as Vote buying and “See and buy” or any other form of inducement and intimidation of the Voters.
NCFront Intervention reads in part: Our non partisan Front hereby wish to alert the Nation, especially the Gen Abdusalami Abubarkar led Peace Committee, INEC and the international community that this unfortunate act of desperation by the party is capable of sparking off a major crisis that could mar the peace and credibility of the entire elections. Therefore, we urge them to quickly step in to nip these subversive and circumventing build up of votes buying in the bud before they degenerate into a free for all, as our pre elections investigations and findings have also revealed a tensive violent build up between the two leading political parties in the Edo elections
Finally, in the event of further recklessness and blatant violations of electoral ethics by any of the contesting political parties, the NCFront as the new conscience of the country, shall not hesitate to raise a formidable petition over the matter before the international community and appropriate international courts of Justice as our Monitoring Situation Room stationed in Edo State has been mandated to compile every electoral offences observed during the elections for judicial processing.
