2019 Poll: Political parties created logistics problems for us -INEC
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has said that a large number of political parties that participated in the 2019 general elections created a lot of logistics problem for the commission.
Speaking with newsmen in Ilorin, Kwara state’s capital, Mohammed Haruna, the National Commissioner in charge of Kwara, Kogi and Nasarawa States, revealed that there were 799 litigations from the 2019 general elections across the country.
INEC organised a workshop in Kwara to review the 2019 general elections.
According to the National Commissioner, Jigawa had no petition from the election, Kwara had only three petitions and that Imo topped the list with 77 petitions.
Haruna, who further stated that there were over 800 million pre-election cases across the country that arose from political parties’ primary elections said something needed to be done about the numbers of the political parties registered.
“So you can see that with these kinds of problems we had, there is really a need to look at the number of political parties.
“We really need to do something about the 91 political parties, not just the quantity which generally speaking, the public has begun to complain that 93 political parties are on the high side,” he added.
While noting that 76 political parties contested for the Presidential election, he admitted that this was the source of the serious logistics problem that the commission had.
“We underestimated the kind of logistical problem that implied the size of the ballot papers, result sheets and so on.
“By the time these materials started arriving, we realise that it was a huge logistical problem.
“We are lucky, we had the Nigerian Air Force to help with the movement of the materials, they have always been helping us,” Haruna said.
