CNPP withdraws from Ondo local council elections

02 March 2016, 20:38

Akure - The Conference of Nigeria Political Parties( CNPP) in Ondo State has withdrawn its participation in the April 23 Local Government elections  in the state.

In a communique issued and signed by the CNPP Chairman, Ayo Isijola and secretary, Muyiwa Odebiyi, the withdrawal became inevitable based on abnormalities in the decision of the state government to conduct the local government election after almost seven years of Governor Olusegun Mimiko’s administration.

It said it’s decision is couple with the prevailing poor State of the economy that had rendered the state government machinery incapable of regular payment of state workers.

The Conference noted that it is disheartening and confusing to all right thinking people of Ondo State why the State Government could not pay workers.

It therefore advised the PDP-led Government to use the money earmarked for Local Government election to pay state workers and retirees’ remunerations and allowances since no State can exist without her people.
