INEC: PPA chieftain urges electoral body to delineate more federal constituencies

PPA

Godwin Ezeemo said the exercise has become necessary because of the clamour for more constituencies by Nigerians, in view of the growing population among other factors.

A chieftain of the Progressive Peoples Alliance (PPA) in Anambra, Mr Godwin Ezeemo, has urged the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), to delineate more Federal Constituencies before the 2019 general elections.

Ezeemo made this call in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday in Umuchu, Aguata Local Government Area of Anambra.

According to him, the exercise has  become necessary because of the clamour for more constituencies by Nigerians, in view of the growing population among other factors.

He urged INEC to muster enough political will to conduct the exercise in accordance with the law and to prove that the commission had the interest of the electorate.

Ezeemo said that the exercise, if carried out, would bridge the inequality gap currently existing in the political map of the nation.

He expressed the belief that the exercise would  also correct the imbalance in the current status of the federal constituencies in the South-East geo-political zone of the country.
