2011: CNPP harps on electoral reform

By Chris Ochayi

ABUJA—The Conference of Nigeria Political Parties, CNPP, has asked President Goodluck Jonathan not to contest the 2011 presidential election, but to concentrate more on how to make Nigerians’ votes to count in the 2011 elections and beyond.

CNPP, which stated this in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Osita Okechukwu yesterday in Abuja, asked President Jonathan to disregard sycophants and place history above pecuniary gains.

The umbrella body of the registered opposition parties was apprehensive that, Jonathan’s participation in the hectic presidential race, will not only crush the rotation convention cultivated since 1999; but will consign the Uwais Report to the dust-bin of history.
