Unity Party to sue INEC, NOA over missing logo

The Ogun State governorship candidate of the Unity Party of Nigeria, Rotimi Paseda, on Friday said the party will sue the National Orientation Agency and the Independent National Electoral Commission for omitting the party’s name and logo from voter’s guide.‎

Mr. Paseda stated this while speaking with journalists in Abeokuta on the development.

He alleged that the omission was a deliberate attempt to exempt the party from the polls.

He emphasised that the omission of the party identity exposed the discriminatory tendencies of the two agencies against the most ideological and reputable party in Nigeria.

The party’s flag bearer alleged that INEC that should be a neutral umpire also collaborated by circulating incomplete information, which he declared as unacceptable.

The party also said it hoped that the omission was not an attempt by the federal government to misinform the public because the party did not support the candidature of President Goodluck Jonathan.

“Contrary to the funder, EU Equal Opportunity Policy, we at UPN will challenge INEC and NOA legally and also make a formal report to EU against the NOA for misusing the EU’s tax payers money. The national orientation Agency NOA has visibly omitted UPN from the voting ballot paper awareness posters used for political parties,” Mr. Paseda said.

    Me thinks criminals also believe Hon. this or Sen. that buys them respectability. They suddenly become the elite of the society on winning the election.

    But even Nigerians themselves don’t want a change in their fortune. It’s as though they prefer this suffering. If not so, tell me why they still allow themselves to be bought by this criminal politicians?
    For me, I think there’s no need telling Nigerians anything. When the time comes for us to act, we will act. And that will be when the present state of things become insufferable. No extraneous goading would make us demand good and purposeful leadership when we don’t see the need for it. So our collective prayer should be that that thing will push us to the wall and make us want a change in our fortune should happen very fast.
