Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - By Ab­bas Ji­moh

Former Kaduna State gover­nor and chair­man of the Con­fer­ence of Po­lit­i­cal Par­ties (CNPP), Al­haji Balarabe Musa, has urged the new chair­man of the In­de­pen­dent Na­tional Elec­toral Com­mis­sion (INEC), Prof. Mah­mood Yakubu, to find ways of work­ing har­mo­niously with the na­tion’s po­lit­i­cal par­ties.

This is con­tained in a congratulatory mes­sage to Yakubu, jointly signed by Musa and the Sec­re­tary Gen­eral of CNPP, Chief Willy Ezugwu.

Ac­cord­ing

to

them, INEC was not “suf­fi­ciently in­de­pen­dent” to con­duct elec­tions and that the new chair­man should draw the at­ten­tion of the Na­tional As­sem­bly to the nec­es­sary amend­ments of the 1999 Con­sti­tu­tion to en­sure democ­racy as well as free and fair elec­tions.
