Ondo -The Labour Party has urged INEC to ensure a hitch- free governorship election in Ondo State on Oct.20.
The national chairman, Dan Nwanyanwu, made the appeal in a communique issued in Abuja on Wednesday at the end of the party’s National Executive Council meeting.
Nwanyanwu urged INEC to stick to its promise to create a level-playing field for all political parties and to ensure a free and fair election in the state.
He commended INEC’s performance during Edo governorship election, and appealed to the electoral body to do same in Ondo on Oct. 20.
The party chairman also lauded President Goodluck Jonathan’s electoral reforms which gave special attention to the principle of one man, one vote.
He expressed the party’s commitment to the unity and indivisibility of the country, adding that ``the prosecution of suspects involved in the subsidy scam by EFCC is a good step in the right direction.’’
