Resist Actions That’ll Undermine Democracy, IPAC Urges Voters In Imo, Bayelsa, Kogi

The National Chairman of the Inter-Party Advisory Council (IPAC), Mr Yabagi Sani, has urged voters in Imo, Kogi, and Bayelsa to resist actions that could undermine the democratic principles guiding the upcoming off-season elections which come up tomorrow, Saturday, November 11.

In a press conference yesterday, Mr. Sani emphasised that a vibrant democracy depends on active citizen participation, informed decision-making, and trust in the governing institutions.

The IPAC Chairman raised concerns about the erosion of trust in the democratic process in Nigeria, which he attributed to increasing political apathy and insecurity.

To restore faith in the electoral process, IPAC introduced an innovative intervention through the Election Results Management System (ERMS).

 

Sani announced that the ERMS Collation module would commence operation on election day, November 11, 2023, and is capable of displaying the results on its official website.

The IPAC Chairman also called on political parties to be more patriotic, stating that the activities of political actors perceived as corrupt and prioritising personal gain over the public good, fuel disillusionment and cynicism.

He also underscored the importance of transparent electoral processes and holding political actors accountable for their actions as crucial steps in restoring faith in Nigeria’s democracy.
