2019 : INEC, security agencies should be neutral- NGO

INEC Chairman, Professor Mahmood Yakubu

A Delta-based Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO), Aproko.com Initiative has urged the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to play according to the rules of the electoral process.

Mr Justin Amaechi who spoke on behalf of the NGO on Saturday in Warri also urged the security agents to be neutral and professional in the discharge of their duty during and after the elections.

Amaechi appealed to the electorates not to monetise their votes, noting that would determine their future and that of the younger generation.

He urged the electorates to collect their Permanent Voters Card (PVC) to enable exercised their civic right at the poll.

“The aim of the NGO is to raise awareness about the overtly involvement of the security agencies in electoral processes.

“The INEC and the security agencies saddled with the responsibility of conducting free and fair elections should be up and doing, should not be biased.

” Nigeria belong to all of us, when we have free and fair election, it improves productivity, professionalism and the economy.

“Every Nigerian should rise and do the right thing, this is the right time for us to change our ways for something better.

“Those who have not picked up their PVC should do so now and go and vote and protect the votes,” he said.

Amaechi urged the politicians not to offer gratification in form of money, food, clothes and others to the electorates in order to woo them.

He advised the electorates to vote according to their conscience.

“We are embarking on sensitisation of the people on need to vote their conscience rather than collecting money to vote,” he said.
