INEC urged to conduct credible polls in 2015

23 July 2012, 08:58

Osun - National Conscience Party (NCP) on Thursday in Osogbo urged INEC to double its efforts to actualise credible elections in 2015.

Its National Secretary General, M. Ayodele Akele, gave the advise on Wednesday in Osogbo.

According to him, INEC officials need to improve on the electoral process for the right candidate to emerge in the 2015 general elections.

“If elections are done on merit, credible elements will emerge.”

On party de-registration, Akele said that NCP was against it, adding that political parties should be allowed to develop with time.

The general secretary said that NCP was of the opinion that the Federal Government should finance political parties justifiably to enhance their growth.

Akele noted that NCP would not deviate from its ideology of abolishing poverty and social injustice.

He urged the party’s members not to withdraw their support, pointing out that their quota was necessary to boost the party.   

“We have charged our members to continue to give us ideas that will support and maintain our solidarity, which is only weapon we have and that is our expectation from them.”
