Delta Council polls: Group drags DSIEC to court

SHARE

The Delta State Local Government Council elections, scheduled for January 2018, may not hold, as a group, Delta Stakeholders Group, has challenged the new Delta State Independent Electoral Commission Law by filing a law suit against its operations at the Federal High Court, Abuja.
The Director of Communications and Strategy, DSG, Prince Henry Efe Duku, who disclosed this to our correspondent in Warri, said that the group had challenged the law, because it was a “very bad” one.
The DSG had informed the people of the state about alleged serious problems with the new DSIEC Law enacted by the administration of Governor Ifeanyi Okowa.
According to the group, the law was a violation of the country’s 1999 Constitution and ‘the Electoral Act in many areas.
“The Law was made to promote fake and rigged LGA elections for Okowa’s PDP. Clearly, the Delta State House of Assembly made itself a laughing stock by passing the law at all,” he added.
He said that after a wide consultation, the DSG decided to take strategic actions to checkmate the creeping tyranny of the Okowa regime.
