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.
