INEC seeks partnership with Delta

11 July 2013, 14:03

Asaba - The Independent Electoral Commission, (INEC) has called for partnership between it and the Delta Government on the provision of accessible roads in the state ahead of 2015 elections.

The Resident Commissioner in the state, Gesila Khan, made the call in Asaba on Thursday when the state Commissioner for Works, Chief Funkekeme Solomon, paid her a courtesy visit.

Khan said that having accessible roads in the state would further improve the voter registration which would start soon in the state.

She noted that good and accessible roads would enable INEC officials to get to all communities for the voter registration and the election in 2015.

Khan also appealed to the state government to assist the commission in sensitising the people to the forthcoming voter registration and the general elections in 2015.

She stressed that the act of thuggery during elections would not be tolerated.

Khan, however, commended the state government for its Peace and Security; Human Capital Development and Infrastructural Development agenda.

She said that the present administration had done so well, especially in the area of infrastructure development.

Earlier, Solomon said that partnership between it and the Federal Government would help to attract more dividends of democracy to the people, especially those at the grassroots.

He said that the state government had spent N40 billion on the maintenance of federal roads in the state.

He assured INEC that the state government was already working on roads maintenance to ensure smooth voter registration and unhindered elections in the state.
