The Chairman of the Inter-Party Advisory Council (IPAC), Mr. Sunday Michael, has described the demise of late Hon. Steven Ukpukpen, former member that represented Obudu 1 State Constituency in the State House of Assembly, as pathetic.
The Cross River IPAC Chairman said this in Calabar during the Town Hall Meeting organized by INEC for stakeholders over the forthcoming bye-election to fill the vacuum that the demise of Late Ukpukpen created.
Mr. Sunday gave the assurance that the Council will partner with security agencies to ensure a free and fair election.
“We would work with the Commissioner of Police, and other security agencies as well as INEC to ensure a credible election.” He said.
He further appealed to members of various political parties in Cross River State who have not been registered to do so with INEC and get their voters cards.
His words: “From the list read from, only 29 out of 35 political parties have completed their registration process; please do so with INEC and others.”
He warned “those whose intention it is to snatch ballot boxes to rescind their intentions as there would be no need for that.”
