IPAC wants deeper involvement in party affairs
The FCT chairman of the Inter-Party Advisory Council (IPAC), Chief Anyaegbunam Okoye, has said that there is the need for IPAC to be deeply involved in the activities of political parties so that it can effectively monitor and provide solutions where necessary.
Speaking during the General Assembly meeting of the Abuja chapter of the council over the weekend, he said the council was created with the mandate to resolve crisis and enlighten political parties on better ways to carry out their activities “in order to bring peaceful democracy in the FCT.”
He called on political parties to ensure that they get the council involved in every congress they organise so that it will contribute to the success of their activities.
Anyaegbunam said the council was faced with the challenges of ‘ very little or no’ resource to run its affairs and appealed to members that there would be no sitting allowances whenever members meet pending when it begins to get assistance and allocations.
The council members also reiterated the need to organise a seminar where political stakeholders would come together and brainstorm on the best ways to carry out the activities of their parties and democracy at large.
