As the National Assembly resumes from its recess to face legislative business this week, Rivers State Deputy Governor Dr. (Mrs.) Ipalibo Harry Banigo has called on the National Law Makers to prevail on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to come out with a definite date and clean blue print for the conduct of a free and fair rerun elections in Rivers State tentatively slated for October by INEC to save the State from seemingly orchestrated Political victimization.
In a statement, Dr. (Mrs.) Banigo said it is sad, provocative and a constitutional breech for INEC to relish in lackadaisical disposition and statements that portrays it as being unserious, inept and overwhelmed in conducting election in Rivers State.
The Deputy Governor wondered why it is only one opposition party out of 30 registered Political Parties in the State that is not complaining about the endless and teleguided postponement, describing the inaction of INEC as a demonstration of incompetence and a dangerous trend to the sustenance of the democratic process.
She regretted that under the current Leadership of INEC, the Country now have an infamous legacies of inconclusive and needless postponement of elections since the exit of Professor Attahiru Jega.
Dr. Banigo urged the National Assembly to invite INEC for interrogation over their inability to conduct rerun elections in the State.
