CSOs ALLEGE ‘MASSIVE VOTERS CARD BUYING’ IN N/EAST

- Advertisment -

Prominent activists and Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) under the auspices of the Say No Campaign (SNC) yesterday in Abuja raised an alarm over alleged massive voters card buying in the north east.

It also said there are massive registrations and collection of voters cards in the area by proxy.

Chairman of the Partners for Electoral Reform (PER) Ezenwa Nwagwu, Executive Director of the Civil Society Legislative Advocacy Centre (CISLAC) Auwal Musa Rafsanjani, former National Convener of the United Action for Democracy (UAD) Jaiye Gaskia and the Head of Research, Policy and Advocacy of Youth Initiative for Advocacy, Growth and Advancement (YIAGA) Samson Itodo co-conveners of the SNC at a joint briefing yesterday in Abuja also protested the withdrawal of security details of the Speaker of the House of Representatives Aminu Waziri Tambuwal.
In a statement, they noted that there are indications elections may not take place in many local governments in the North East taken over by insurgents and declared as caliphates except something more positive happen.
“INEC should begin to investigate the proxy collection of voters card activities going on in the North Eastern states and sanction those involved in the process whilst looking at strategy and approach towards ensuring that all parties including those at the IDPs are not disenfranchised,” the statement said.
It said the recent withdrawal of the security details attached to Speaker House of Representatives, Aminu Tambuwal, apparently because of his defection from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressive Congress (APC) is unfortunate and unconstitutional
