The National Chairman of the African Democratic Congress, Chief Ralphs Nwosu, has called on the Independent National Electoral Commission not to compromise its integrity on the general elections.

He made the call in a statement issued on Sunday in Abuja.

He implored the INEC to follow the path of honour by maintaining their policy of continuous improvement of the electoral system and process.

“It smacks of gross irresponsibility for the commission and its staff to attempt to mess with the much prized BVAS and servers in spite of the commitment and understanding of all stakeholders and our international friends,” he said.

Nwosu urged the commission to endeavour to finish well to help the country heal and its democracy to continue to advance.

“They must not at this time collude with unpatriotic elements and self-serving politicians to compromise the integrity of the commission and our democracy.

“The scandalous flirtation between some of its ad-hoc staff and principal officers is capable of discrediting the commission’s effort,” he urged.

He advised the youths to ensure they take their rightful position in the comity of nations.

Nwosu, while commending INEC, also urged it to remain neutral and unbiased in its execution of the election.

“The voices that spoke so loudly and clearly cannot be allowed to be drowned by the evil machination of a few that had put Nigeria in darkness since independence.

“The unfolding incidents around the many regions are simply unfortunate and near despicable.

“The noticeable and embarrassing irregularities appear suspicious to the citizens of Nigeria and to many international observers.

“The youths and majority of our citizens have made so much sacrifice for this day.It behoves INEC and President Muhammadu Buhari to take whatever steps necessary to correct all abnormalities,” he said.
