IPAC Urges Political Parties to Reassess Pricing of Expression of Interest and Nomination Forms

During the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC’s second regular quarterly consultative meeting with political parties, the Inter Party Advisory Council (IPAC) has advocated for a review of the costs associated with expression of interest and nomination forms within political parties. IPAC Chairman, Yusuf Dantalle, emphasized the need for this adjustment on Monday.

Expressing disapproval of the prevalent politics characterized by bitterness and a ‘do-or-die’ mentality, Dantalle warned that such behaviors could erode the progress of Nigeria’s democracy. He urged politicians to uphold democratic principles, ethical standards, and avoid any rhetoric or actions that could destabilize the constitutional governance.

Highlighting the issue of exorbitant fees for expression of interest and nomination forms imposed by certain political parties, Dantalle stressed the importance of revising these charges, despite them being considered internal matters of the parties.

He stated, “IPAC will persist in engaging party leadership on various topics, including the reduction of candidate imposition and enhancement of internal democracy, as part of our efforts to contribute towards the improvement of Nigeria.”
