Enugu State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has urged the State Independent Electoral Commission (ENSIEC) to ensure free, fair and credible Local Government elections in February, 2022.
EKO HOT BLOG reports that the factional chairman of the party in the state, Mr. Ugochukwu Agballa, made the call on Sunday in Enugu at the end of its stakeholders meeting.
The meeting comprised delegates from the 17 Local Government Areas and Ward levels.
Agballa urged the ENSIEC to provide level playing ground for all political parties to participate.
The party also warned against disqualifying candidates of opposition parties from participating in the poll.
He reminded the state government of the constitutional right to vote and be voted for during election, as enshrined in the 1999 Constitution of Nigeria.
He said the APC would challenge anyone who disenfranchised the electorate from voting.
Agballa noted that the party would mobilise electorate in the state to go and vote for the party in the election, in order to correct political imbalance in the state.
Agballa noted that the people of the state were not only tired of the political monopoly but were also frustrated as they were not given the opportunity to participate to the development of the state.
