The Composition Of The Proposed Rivers State Electoral Independent Commission - Our Position by Eze Chukwuemeka Eze


Our attention has being drawn to the recent nomination of the 5 Man Management Committee of the proposed  Rivers State Independent Electoral Commission by the Rivers State Government that is expected to conduct the Local Government Councils election in Rivers State and we will like to observe as follows.

1. We members of Action Congress and Tonye Princewill Campaign Organization in Rivers State herby rejects unequivocally the lopsidedness appointment of only card carrying members of Peoples Democratic Party's members into this sensitive Commission that should be seen to be unbiased umpire and made up of with impeccable characters expected to organise a fraud less Local Government Council's election accetable to the participating political parties in the state. These PDP card carrying members so nominated whose sole mission is to return only PDP Chairmen to power are: - Dr David O. Ogbonnaya, Kenneth Amaehule, Kombo Johnson, Emmanuel Dappa and Mike Wialaghi.

2. The list of some of the nominees  apart from being card carrying members of PDP are people of questionable character that are not qualified to occupy such a sensitive position in the State Electoral Commission

3. The nomination apart from being done with ulterior motives could not be allowed to follow the due process of being read in the State House of Assembly at least three times before being adopted and accepted by the House as the laws stipulates if not why the haste in adopting the list without due process.

Let us reiterate that the Federal Government in recognition of the fraud that was called an election in the country has constituted a body to review the country's electoral system in order to prevent the charade and sham that was called an election in the country particularly in Rivers State. In this regard we wish to state that apart from waiting for this review exercise to be concluded, we will like to urge the Rivers State Government not only to withdraw the list immediately but suspend any conduct of any election in the Local Government Councils until the legitimacy of the present administration is determined by the Election Tribunal currently sitting in the State over its purported election in an obvious established fraudulent election that makes it lacks the powers to conduct any credible election in the State considering the fact that the present government in the State was a product of  the most rigged election in the country that is being used as a referent point all over the world.

We must commend and congratulate Hon Chidi Lloyd Member of the Rivers State House representing Emouha LGA though a member of PDP has stood aside from the evil and embarrassment PDP has constituted itself in the State by disassociate himself from an illegal passage of a list that ought to be read in the House at least three times before passage.

In conclusions, should the State Government still go ahead in this illegality we as a law-abiding group will be left with no option than institute a legal procedure to stop once again this illegality against our people in Rivers State.
