CNPP urges de-registered parties to join merger

26 December 2012, 07:08

Abuja - The Conference of Nigeria Political parties (CNPP) on Tuesday urged all de-registered parties to join the merger plan of the ACN, CPC and ANPP .

CNPP's National Publicity Secretary, Mr Osita Okechukwu, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja that the conference supported the merger proposal.

"CNPP is in support of the three political parties that are trying to merge and calls on those de-registered to join the merger plan.

"We applaud the CPC, ACN and ANPP for trying to come together, this will enable them to form a united front," he said.

Okechukwu urged the INEC's National Chairman, Prof. Attahiru Jega, to ''pay more attention to those things that can bring to bear, free and fair election in Nigeria".

"Government has stopped funding parties and if it has stopped funding parties, they would find ways to sustain themselves," he said.

Okechukwu urged the INEC boss to pay more attention to the Uwais Electoral Reform since he (Jega) was a member of the committee.

"He should pay attention to advance those courses recommended by the committee.

"We need free and fair election; if there is free and fair election, the political parties on their own will do their own internal censorship," he said.
