PDP gives LASIEC 21 days to re­lease guide­lines for LG polls

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From Ab­dul­la­teef Aliyu, La­gos

As un­cer­tainty con­tin­ues to sur­round con­duct of lo­cal gov­ern­ment elec­tions in La­gos State, the PDP has given the La­gos State In­de­pen­dent Elec­toral Com­mis­sion (LASIEC) a 21-day ul­ti­ma­tum to pub­lish no­tice and guide­lines for the polls.

The party in La­gos said that fail­ure to pub­lish no­tice and guide­lines for the polls would prompt its mem­bers to tell Lagosians to stop deal­ing with the coun­cils be­cause do­ing so would amount to law­less­ness and brig­andage.

In a state­ment is­sued by its pub­lic­ity sec­re­tary, Taofiq Gani, yes­ter­dauy, the PDP said: “It is well known fact that the APC is not fash­ion­able for any po­lit­i­cal vic­tory at this present time. This is the main rea­son why they de­layed coun­cil polls for close to three years. This is no more ac­cept­able. The APC can at least al­low the polls and go ahead to char­ac­ter­is­ti­cally rig the re­sults.

“Bla­tantly deny­ing the peo­ple of rep­re­sen­ta­tive gov­ern­ment of their choice at that tier of gov­ern­ment is the height of im­punity and un­con­sti­tu­tion­al­ism in this gov­ern­ment.”
