Ahead of the governorship election in Kogi State, the Independent National Electoral Commission has called on political parties to conduct transparent primaries.
The commission in a statement through its Resident Electoral Commissioner in Kogi, Prof. James Apam, charged political parties to adhere to electoral rules ahead of the governorship election set for November 16, 2019.
Prof. Apam stated this while speaking in Lokoja at a sensitisation workshop organised for chairmen of political parties.
He also called on political parties to adhere to the rules of the commission and of the party to avoid a repeat of what happened during the last election in Zamfara state.
“As a monitor, we keep on emphasising for them to follow the rules and regulations. Of course, what happened in Zamfara State is an eye-opener.”
“We do hope that with the clear decision of the court, the parties must ensure they abide by their existing rules and regulations. A clear signal has been sent to them and I think that will be an eye-opener to them,” he said.
