Inter-party Advisory Council (IPAC), to interact with Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) against buying of votes.


The Inter-party Advisory Council (IPAC), the umbrella body of all registered political parties in Nigeria, yesterday said it would constitute a legal body to interact with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to address the menace of vote buying.

Addressing journalists yesterday during the inauguration of the newly elected officials of IPAC, Chairman of the Council, Chief Peter Ameh, pledged the readiness of the body to interact with government on the way forward, even as he questioned the rationale behind the police invitation extended to him recently.

Also speaking at the event, 1st spokesman of the Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP), Ikenga Ugochinyere said the leadership of IPAC would ensure the enactment of an enabling law to checkmate vote buying as the nation matches into the 2019 general elections.
