2023: Lawan tasks INEC on fairness, ask aspirants to accept party primaries outcomes


Senate President, Dr Ahmad Ibrahim Lawan Tuesday tasked the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on fairness, justice and equity which it earlier promised as political parties move into the process of primaries.

Lawan gave the charge before adjourning the upper legislative Chamber to 7th June 2022.

He said the Chamber was adjourning to enable Senators participate actively in the processes leading to primaries, stating that all Senators are contesting for one office or the other.

In his words, Lawan said, there are three presidential aspirants contesting on the platform of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), which he prayed that one of them will emerge as a presidential candidate, while a good number of them are set to contest governorships in their States including Senators on the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

He urged aspirants across board to accept the outcome of the results, especially if the process was in line with the guidelines and the Electoral Act.
