Pat Utomi has called on INEC to probe PVC Hoarding and the attack on Labour Party supporters in Lagos. 

NewsOnline reports that a Chieftain of the Labour Party, Prof. Pat Utomi, has urged the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to probe the alleged hoarding of Permanent Voters Cards (PVCs) in Lagos State.

Utomi urged the commission not to allow any plot to disenfranchise the electorate.

The political economist complained about the destruction of Labour Party (LP) campaign materials.

 

Pat Utomi made the call on Monday in Lagos.

“NEC must consider this alleged abuse as a violation of the electoral Act and tackle it headlong”, he said.

He condemned the tearing of the posters and beating of citizens wearing vests of other parties in Lagos.

 

Utomi called such acts “uncivilised” and “unbecoming of people who claimed to be progressive and enlightened”.

“The use of area boys to intimidate voters is said to reach proportions of taking some people to the International Criminal Court (ICC).”

The professor added that a new modern Lagos “ought to be an arena of democratic freedom”.
