PDP Sets Up Committee For Electoral Act, Constitutional Amendments

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has announced the composition of its  engagement committee on the proposed amendment to the Electoral Act as  well as the 1999 Constitution (as amended).

The Committee, which has former Deputy Senate President, Ike  Ekweremmadu, as Chairman is to, among other things, collate inputs from  critical stakeholders as well as engage relevant civil society groups  and work closely with the National Assembly for more inclusive and  accelerated processes in the desired amendment to the Electoral Act and  the 1999 Constitution.

Such amendments include a constitutional review that will among other  things entrench the desired federal structure as well as a review of the  Electoral Act that will guarantee free, fair, clean, transparent and  credible elections, while eliminating loopholes that encourage violence,  manipulations and rigging at all levels.

Other members of the committee are Senator Suleiman Nazif, Barr.  Emmanuel Enoidem, Hon. T.J Yusuf, Hon. Kingsley Chinda, Senator Sahabi  Yau, Senator Biodun Olujimi, Mrs. Laurentia Mallam, Dr. Oche Joseph  Otorkpa (Youths Demography), Hon. Joyce Ramnap and Barr. Taminu Turaki  SAN, who serves as the secretary of the committee.

The PDP urges all critical stakeholders and all party members to avail  themselves the opportunity presented by the establishment of the  committee to make contributions towards the proposed amendment to the  1999 Constitution and the Electoral Act.
