Again INEC omits Labour Party’s logo on ballot papers sent to Ondo State

Again INEC omits Labour Party’s logo on ballot papers sent to Ondo State

By Tayo Elegbede

Again fresh reports have emerged that the logo of the Labour Party is missing on the ballot papers sent to Ondo State by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Naija News reports that the development is the second to be reported in barely 24 hours to the Saturday polls.

This platform earlier reported that the Lagos State Chapter of the Labour Party (LP) had slammed INEC for allegedly omitting the party’s logo on ballot papers for the Senatorial and House of Representatives elections billed for Saturday.

The state LP Chairperson, Dayo Ekong, made this known on Thursday during a news conference in Ikeja, calling on INEC to reschedule the election until the party’s candidates were included on the ballots.

Naija News reports that INEC, in Lagos State, on Wednesday took delivery of sensitive materials for the Presidential and National Assembly Elections scheduled for Saturday.

However, Dayo described the error as malicious, stating it is unacceptable because it was a wicked way of disenfranchising Lagos electorates.

This was noticed barely 24 hours to the presidential election scheduled to hold Saturday.

She noted that the error was not a mistake but rather a deliberate, malicious, and intentional act by the electoral umpire.

She said: “This malicious error was found out this morning in Lagos, by me and my team of executive members during the routine inspection of election materials.

“It was at inspection that it was discovered that the Labour Party was not listed for the election for Senate in and House of Representatives in Lagos State. This is unacceptable and a wicked way of disenfranchising Lagos electorates.

“It is unimaginable that for the elections slated for Saturday, Feb. 25, Lagos electorate will only vote for the Labour Party Presidential Candidate as INEC made no provision for the election of Party’s Senate and House of Representatives Candidates.

“We cannot accept this as we do not believe that INEC made a mistake but rather, a deliberate, malicious and intentional act by INEC at disenfranchising our supporters from exercising their civic rights which is unacceptable.”
