INEC promises credible polls in Kwara

19 June 2014, 10:23

Ilorin - The Kwara State Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), Timothy Ibitoye, on Wednesday gave an assurance  that INEC would conduct free, fair and credible elections in the state.

He gave the assurance when he received executive members of the PDP in the state  led by the Chairman, Iyiola Oyedepo, in his office.

Ibitoye, who described  INEC as an unbiased umpire, said the commission was  established to serve political parties.

“INEC is established to serve the political parties by way of conducting free and fair elections. If the political parties are not there, INEC will have no  work to do,” he said.

He  called on political parties to be actively involved in the programmes of the commission, particularly those on public enlightenment.

Ibitoye also advised political parties to discharge their duties responsibly to the electorate.

INEC, he added,  would regularly  invite   parties to  meetings in order to enlighten them on  the commission’s programmes.

He also said INEC had produced code of conduct manual for  parties and appealed to them  to cooperate with the commission.
