Abuja The Conference of Nigeria Political parties (CNPP) on Tuesday urged all de-registered parties to join the merger plan of the ACN, CPC and ANPP .
CNPPâ€™s National Publicity Secretary, Mr Osita Okechukwu, in Abuja said that the conference supported the merger proposal.
â€CNPP is in support of the three political parties that are trying to merge and calls on those de-registered to join the merger plan.
â€We applaud the CPC, ACN and ANPP for trying to come together, this will enable them to form a united front,â€ he said.
Okechukwu urged the INECâ€™s National Chairman, Prof. Attahiru Jega, to â€pay more attention to those things that can bring to bear, free and fair election in Nigeriaâ€.
â€Government has stopped funding parties and if it has stopped funding parties, they would find ways to sustain themselves,â€ he said.
Okechukwu urged the INEC boss to pay more attention to the Uwais Electoral Reform since he (Jega) was a member of the committee.
â€He should pay attention to advance those courses recommended by the committee.
â€We need free and fair election; if there is free and fair election, the political parties on their own will do their own internal censorship,â€ he said. (NAN)
