About the 20 Parties, INEC lied
It has come to the knowledge of the LIBERAL DEMOCRATIC PARTY OF NIGERIA (LDPN) that not only is INEC interested in failing to conduct a free, fair and credible election come April, 2011, that INEC is passionately playing an ignoble script in favour of elements interested in continuing the plunder of our collective patrimony. We are aware of the Report in the Vanguard and the Nation Newspapers of Wednesday 2nd, February, 2011 on Pages 5, and Pages I and 2 respectively where INEC is alleged to have declared 20 Political Parties unfit to exist as well as listing our great Party as one of those that did not meet the 31st January, 2011 deadline for the submission of lists of Party Candidates.
We state in the most unequivocal terms that the LIBERAL DEMOCRATIC PARTY OF NIGERIA (LDPN) met the deadline for the submission of the list of candidates and is poised to wrest POWER from the PDP led government through the Ballot come April. We also want to state that on the degistration of 20 Political Parties by INEC we shall contest this in Court conscious of the fact that some registered Political Parties like the Democratic Front of Prof. Wole Soyinka may well be Parties of the future, and taking into cognisance the flawed elections of the past non of the Parties accused of having not won any elections into the National and or State Houses of Assembly hitherto cannot be blamed.
May we also state that the Commission (INEC) which consistently frustrated the rights of the People through rigged, flawed and failed elections lack the moral nexus to accuse the Parties of not having won elections. It is a known fact that as at the time we submitted the list of our candidates on the 31st of January, 2011 being the deadline the list of most of the PDP Candidates had not been submitted so INEC should cease to intimidate and misinform Nigerians rather it should face and resolve the issues surrounding the near failed Voters Registration exercise.
Finally, we call on all Nigerians to remain eternally vigilant because such is the price of freedom, of progress and of development. We must insist that rather than heat up the polity through unguarded media releases INEC should concentrate on the fundamentals before her, which is the registration of voters, the compilation and collation of a credible voters register and above all the conduct of a free, fair and credible election come April..
GOD BLESS NIGERIA.
