Collaborate with EFCC, ICPC to curb electoral fraud – Group charges INEC

A human rights group, The Democrat (TD) has charged the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to collaborate with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related Offences Commission (ICPC), to curb electoral corruption in the forthcoming general elections in 2019.

The group also called on the National Assembly to empower INEC in the fight against electoral corruption, through prompt passage of relevant laws to check electoral fraud.

The aim of such collaboration, according to Ojoawo, was to “minimise the influence of money in 2019 general elections.”

He further urged “INEC to shun corruption and be on top of situation regarding the conduct of elections in the country.”

He expressed concern over electoral violence.

Ojoawo said “INEC must ensure proper monitoring of campaign of all the political parties and candidates. We are also calling on the electoral body to collaborate with armed forces to guarantee adequate security in the 2019 general election”.
