The Conference of Nigerian Political Parties (CNPP) has said that the gubernatorial election scheduled for this coming Saturday should go ahead as planned by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
The Conference said that that the material conditions upon which the postponement of elections could be predicated does not substantially exist in the Ondo case; therefore INEC should go ahead and conduct the gubernatorial election as scheduled.
A statement signed Wednesday in Abuja by the CNPP acting national publicity secretary, Veteran Olawale Okunniyi, the intra party wranglings and the do or die tussle heating the Ondo Politics arena from the All Progressives Congress (APC), Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and the peace mechanism procured by the Alliance for Democracy (AD) could have been unnecessary if internal democracy has been consummated in politics.
“CNPP, for the umpteenth time, wishes to call on Nigerian political parties to imbibe the crucial tenets of internal democracy so as to harmoniously elect candidates at every election instead of over heating the polity and putting our fledgling democracy at self foisting harm.
“For it is quite painful and nauseating to note the unwarranted burden always imposed on our judiciary and the INEC by mindless political gladiators who refused to put their acts together by venturing into unbridled political harakiri.”
