BREAKING NEWS || IPAC PREDICTS VIOLENCE IN 2019 ELECTIONS, READ THEIR WARNING

2019 elections may be violent, says IPAC

•Prof. Yakubu Mahmood

The Inter Party Advisory Council (IPAC) has warned that violence may mar the 2019 elections, unless stringent actions are taken by  stakeholders to stem the tide of politically motivated killings.

It said that steps should be taken immediately to discourage rising political violence in elections in the country.

IPAC said severe sanctions should be meted out to those who sponsored political violence during the recent legislative rerun in Rivers State.

Massive violence was reported to have marred the elections. A senior police officer and others were said to have been killed during the election.

The Chairman of IPAC, Mohammad Nalado, in a statement in Abuja, said the violence that marred the polls was unnecessary.

He said the political parties that participated in the election had subscribed to a code of conduct containing the guidelines for a peaceful exercise.

Nalado said the violators of the guidelines should be brought to justice in accordance with the law.

He said if drastic actions are not meted out to the sponsors of violence, the security of lives and properties in subsequent elections cannot be guaranteed.

Nadalo recalled how IPAC championed and sustained the campaign for peace in Ondo State before its recent  governorship elections.

The IPAC boss, who is also the Chairman of the Accord Party, enjoined other stakeholders to support  IPAC’s efforts at ensuring peaceful elections.

He, however, commended the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and security agencies for their commitment, which prevented the escalation of violence in Rivers State.
