NCP vows to take exclusion up to Supreme Court

THE countrywide sense of right and wrong party, NCP whose applicants had been all delisted by using LASIEC remaining Tuesday has vowed to pursue its case for justice up to the excellent court. all the candidates of the NCP were rejected via the fee following the court motion instituted by means of the birthday party to protest the collection of the executive charge set for the events by using the fee.

General Secretary of the party, Comrade Ayodele Akele, asserted that in a press conference in Ikeja at the same time as he alleged a grand conspiracy by using the All Progressives Congress, APC, LASIEC and a few elements within the judiciary to control the elections to the favour of the APC.

Akele stated, “The hard facts on the ground confirm the reality. As we speak, 77 NCP candidates for the council polls have been wickedly denied forms and registration by Philips led LASIEC using illegal guidelines unprecedented, callously imposed on the forthcoming elections. The NCP had organized its primaries peacefully since May 20, 2017 in the presence of three LASIEC representatives and the list had been submitted formally to LASIEC.”

The party, consequently, questioned why the same LASIEC has refused to provide electoral forms whilst the management requested for them.“We have been ostracized along with the millions of people that never met the conditions imposed by LASIEC. Unlike LASIEC, Independent National Election Commission, INEC forms are available online free of charge for party candidates to download, fill and submit with supporting documents. Why must INEC forms be free and LASIEC forms are not? Why must LASIEC case be different? Where is the precedent?, he said.”

Akele maintained it turned into illegal and undemocratic for LASIEC to fee a kobo for any form for the election as there are splendid court rulings towards the hints seeing that 2003 in a lawsuit filed with the aid of the founder of NCP overdue leader Gani Fawehinmi.

NCP also expressed worry over the fact that the birthday celebration had in advance filed a lawsuit against LASIEC in Lagos excessive courtroom seeing that may also 12, 2017, “over the undemocratic guidelines with an Affidavit of Urgency attached and as we speak, two months after, the lawsuit has not been heard by any judge in Lagos State High Court. This is a big scandal.”
