Redeployment in INEC will improve administration efficiency - AD

30 December 2014, 18:49

Abuja - The National Secretary, Alliance for Democracy (AD), Mr Rafiu Salau, on Tuesday said the redeployment of INEC Resident Electoral Commissioners (RECs) would improve the commission’s administrative efficiency.

Salau told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja that all Nigerians should be able to work in any part of the country.
It would be recalled that INEC had on Dec. 29 redeployed some of its RECs across the federation.

"The redeployment of the Electoral Commissioners is a normal administrative strategy for efficiency.

"The party believes that every Nigerian should be able to work in any part of the country.

"Therefore, the Electoral Commissioners are to ensure that all states are equal and manageable in the discharge of their duties,’’ he said.

Salau said the party had embarked on its campaign at the grassroots level and pledged that the campaigns would be in tandem with the INEC time-table.

"The grassroots campaign is the responsibility of every local government structure of the party.

"The party will embark on house-to-house campaign for the voters to have the awareness of their benefits when a government is under the leadership of AD.

"The campaign has started and it will comply with the timetable of INEC, and the state chapters will complement the efforts of the campaign at the local government level,’’ he said.

The scribe also said that the party had submitted a list of its candidates to INEC and AD would not entertain the replacement of those nominated by the party members at its primary.

"The party has submitted its candidates according to the timetable of the INEC.

"The party also abided by the Electoral Act and the Rules and Regulations of the political parties to nominate candidates.

"For instance, the party presented only those who emerged at the primaries.

"AD will not entertain the replacement of those nominated by the party members at the primary which was supervised by INEC with those who didn't participate,’’ he said.

However, Salau assured that errors would be corrected.
