New INEC Commissioners: Jega only non-PDP nominee, CNPP
Conference of Nigeria Political Parties, CNPP, said yesterday that except Professor Attahiru Jega, all the new commissioners nominated in the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, are either members or supporters of ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
The umbrella body of the registered political parties, while reacting to the President Goodluck Jonathan’s intention to withdraw PDP members from the electoral body, insisted that Jonathan must accept the Justice Uwais report as guiding principle if he wants to make any meaningful effort at creating a truly electoral body.
CNPP, which made the remarks in a statement issued by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Osita Okechukwu in Abuja, advised that the only solution is for President Jonathan to urgently submit the three Bills therein in the Uwais Report, as Executive Bills for genuine First Amendment by the National and State Assemblies; rather than the tepid and self glorification document in circulation.
