The Comrade Julius Abure-led Labour Party has rejected the result of the Edo State Local Government Election held on Saturday as announced by the State Independent Electoral Commission

The LP condemned the election as conducted by the Edo SIEC, describing it as another sad testimony of how low a state government can descend in attempting to rubbish the gains of democracy.

This was contained in a statement issued by the National Publicity Secretary, Obiora Ifoh, in Abuja, on Sunday.

Ifoh quoted Abure as saying that democracy can only succeed when the authorities allow the votes of the people to count and the choice of the voters respected.

He said, “Reports from our agents across most of the polling units in the state confirmed that there were deliberate effort by the EDSIEC to frustrate voters by ensuring that the electoral officers either came late to the polling units or didn’t show up at all.

Human rights lawyer, Femi Falana, SAN, has urged the leaders of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) to support the struggle to end the “reckless exploitation of the mineral resources” of Mali, Niger Republic, Burkina Faso and Guinea and other African countries by imperialism.

The Senior Advocate of Nigeria also urged the leaders of ECOWAS to approve the proposed limit tenure of elected African presidents to two terms without any further delay.

According to the Senior Advocate of Nigeria, this is in view of the wave of military coup d’etat sweeping across the region.

He noted that Gambia and Togo opposed the proposal in 2015, while in 2022, the proposal was also opposed by Cote d’Ivoire, Senegal, and Togo.

Falana who made this known at the West Africa Civil Society Week (WACSW) on August 29, 2023, held in Lagos, said apart from one or two member states of the ECOWAS, democracy cannot be said to have come to stay in the region.
