APC shall resist any attempt to manipulate Akwa Ibom Local Government Election- Senator Aloysius Etok

TEXT OF A PRESS CONFERENCE BY SENATOR ALOYSIUS ETOK, CHAIRMAN, APC LOCAL GOVERNMENT ELECTION CAMPAIGN COMMITTEE HELD AT THE PARTY SECRETARIAT IN UYO ON WEDNESDAY, 15TH NOVEMBER, 2017
 
Gentlemen of the press,
 
The All Progressives Congress (APC), Akwa Ibom State Chapter is getting increasingly perturbed and concerned following verifiable information of clandestine moves by the PDP in collusion with the stated independent Electoral Commission (AKISIEC) to gain undue advantage in the in the December 2nd Local Government election.
 
Right from the issuance of Notice for Local Government election by AKISIEC, we observed a clear pattern of absurdity and breach of rules of practice and procedure for the call-up to the election for which we approached the court for relevant interpretation.
 
As expected, we are pursuing the matter and other issues of concern via the appropriate judicial channels to ensure that APC and her candidates stand on a and proper footing with other candidates for the election.
 
Consequent upon further concern, APC issued a press Release on 8th November, 2017 titled “Illegal/Secret Recruitment and Training of ad hoc Staff for the December 2nd Local Government Election by AKISIEC” wherein we queried and cautioned the recruitment exercise by AKISIEC which ought to be open and transparent but was fraught with irregularities and embellished in secrecy.
 
Of late, APC has noticed with dismay an amended edition of the publication the ” AKISIEC Manual for Election Official (2017)”, copies of which are restricted from circulation to the party. Informed sources say the essential provisions of the Manual dealing with announcement of election results has been drastically altered and clearly negates the provisions of the Electoral Act 2010 as Amended.
