The state leader of Progressive People’s Alliance, PPA, and its governorship candidate in the November16 2013 election in Anambra state, Mr. Godwin Ezeemo said that Ndigbo should come together to have a political integrating points where laudable ideology could be proffered by Igbo leaders for strategic planning in order to place their cause right to achieve their agenda in the national polity.
“Elections are over but it is not over till Ndigbo learn how to see themselves as one, plans as one, removing every self-interest, placing the future of Igbos above all in the politic of the nation.
He said that Igbos should see something good in fellow Igbo and support it, fight it and achieve it whether in the same political party or not.
Speaking to Nigerian Pilot in Awka yesterday, the PPA leader stated that INEC has done well in giving a more credible electoral process in the country as rigging was not openly and massively done as used to be the trend in previous elections in the country.
Ezeemo said elections should not be must do or die adding that “when you desire to serve your people in any political capacity, all you need do is to showcase yourself and ideology and if accepted so be it.”
He however faulted some of the INEC results released in his local government Aguata where he said that proof of electoral irregularities abound and over counting of registered voters existed yet results were announced.
Ezeemo advised that INEC should try to instill in their staffers the spirit of sincerity, honesty, fair play and patriotism, pointing that any wrong pronouncement of results for representation in any capacity would compel the people to lose confidence and trust in INEC in subsequent elections.
He called on INEC to consider the old option A4 system of election which he said holds so much benefits and that the system saves cost for the country.
According to him, “the practice of option A4 will drastically reduced electoral fraud and sanity in our electoral system and that will encourage men with proven integrity to venture into politics.”
