…it is an effort to muscle the opposition,and discourage young politicians.
The Chairman of New Nigerian People’s Party in Ogun state, Comrade Olaposi Oginni have condermed in totality the decision of the state electoral umpire for Chairmanship aspirants to pay #200,000 and #100,000 for councilorship aspirants for the election.
Comrade Oginni said it is morally and politically wrong considering the situation of the country.
He said,”the decision is against fairness and equity in our society.It is against the Political ambition of young and inspiring grassroot politicians who have patiently waited for this time to contest for the local government election.For any Government to agree to such decision,is a sign that we don’t have a government that is people oriented.This is an indication that this administration is a government of the rich by the rich and for the rich.”
He added that the decision for the aspirants to pay such money will be challenged.”We are going to challenge this Government legally,politically, socially;and also take them to the court of the people’s opinion,so they can know how unrealistic this administration is to the people’s plight.It is unacceptable and we are not going to take that from them.”
While explaining his party readiness for the LG election,he said “NNPP is fully ready to kick APC out during the local government election,as a template for what the people should expect in 2023.”
