Lawan Hamidu, Abuja


A Civil Society Organisation, Movement for Transparent Elections, Mte, has called on the National Assembly to urgently passed the Independent Electoral Commission’s, INEC’s Budget for the conduct of the 2019 Elections.

The Group made the call in Abuja on Thursday when it staged a protest  match to the National Assembly to present a letter to the Senate President  Dr. Bukola Saraki  and the Speaker House of Representatives, Mr. Yakubu Dogara  stating  their demands.

The Convener of the Group, Mr. Abiodun Ajijola who led members in the  match said that failure on the part of the Law makers to pass the budget for the Electoral body would jeopardize the smooth conduct of the exercise.

Mr. Abiodun Ajijola said that should the National Assembly failed to passed the INEC Budget beyond the 18th of this Month, the Movement would have no option but to mobilize Nigerians in a sustained Nation-wide protest against the Legislature.
