The Senatorial Candidate of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) in Ondo Central Senatorial District, Hon Seun Majasan has expressed dissatisfaction over the exclusion the name of the party on ballot papers in his Senatorial District in the just concluded Senate election last Saturday
According to him, not only that the name of the party (NNPP) was completely missing but the Logo of the party was not clear enough for people to see like other parties.
“I want to say categorically that INEC has failed us and our National leaders need to take action on this matter. This must not be repeated in the Assemblies elections.”
Speaking with newsmen in Akure, the state capital today, Majasan who rejected the outcome of the election said “I think it was a calculated attempt to disfranchising my people in election and this is unacceptable.”
‘On election day, I received several calls that my supporters could not see the name of the party in the ballot paper and the party’s sign, basket of fruits was not clear for people to see. I would have won the election from all indications but see what INEC do to me.
“I need to draw the attention of Independent National Electoral Commission INEC to this issue concerning my party in Ondo State where the party’s name is not on ballot papers and the party sign is not clear enough
“I expected the ballot paper to show clearly the NNPP sign even when the name of the party is completely missing”, he said
Majasan therefore lamented that alot of people were disenfranchised. “It is rather unfortunate and I know it is deliberate and intentional act to disenfranchise NNPP supporters from exercising their civic rights, which is unacceptable.”
