2015 Elections: Politicians Warned Against Early Campaigns By INEC
This warning is coming from the independent national electoral commission, following an observation that campaign posters are being indiscriminately displayed while electioneering broadcasts are being aired outside statutory provisions in the electoral act.
According to INEC, this act by some politicians and registered political parties is unacceptable and capable of truncating Nigeria’s democracy.
INEC adds “this trend is unhealthy and portends ill for the political process; indeed it is a threat to Nigeria’s democracy.”
INEC’s chairman Professor Attahiru Jega therefore warns that the commission may be forced to apply the law of it is not stopped.
