EDO PDP Rejects Amended Local Government Law, Threatens Court Action

By Monday Ebalu, Benin city

The Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP) on Thursday resolved to challenge the recent amendment of the Edo state local government Electoral law by the State House of Assembly even as it condemned the composition of the state electoral commission.

Chairman of the party in the state Chief Dan Osi Orbih addressing reporters after a stakeholders meeting at the Party secretariat in Benin City, the Edo state capital said that the party was heading to the court on the basis of three issues.

The first issue he said is whether, “the Edo state house of assembly cannot validly amend the Edo state local government Electoral law to abridge the length of notice of poll stated in section 30(1)of the electoral act, 2010 as amended having regard to paragraph 11 and 12 of Part 2 of the second schedule to the Constitution of the federal republic of Nigeria as (amended)”.

He said the second issue is whether , “No valid local government election can be conducted in Edo state without giving the claimant and other stakeholders the mandatory 90-days notice of poll stated in section 30(1) of the electoral act 2010 (as amended).

According to Orbih, the court would also determine whether, “the amendment to the LG law made by the Edo assembly on 12th Dec. 2017 was done in violation of the mandatory provisions of the rules of the Edo state house of assembly on law making process in the house and section 100(2) of the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria”.

The PDP chairman said the party decided to seek legal redress on the matter to help put an end to the unending impunity being orchestrated in Edo state and the country by the ruling All Peoples Congress, APC.

He also frowned at what he called the undemocratic guidelines the APC has made available to its members to the effect that party members who have held positions Councillors or worked as civil servants in their local government should not aspire to elective offices as Councillors or Chairmen.

He then urged all aggrieved APC members in the state who feel disenfranchised as a result of the guidelines to seek legal redress since the guidelines do not only negate the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria but even the Constitution of the APC as a party.

The PDP chairman who rejected and objected to the composition of the Edo state Independent Electoral Commission, EDSIEC with Professor Stanley Orobator as Chairman called on all its members whom he said are card carrying members of a registered political party in the country to disqualify themselves.

In a related development the Inter-party Advisory Council of Nigeria, IPAC, has aligned itself with the submission of the Edo PDP on the abiding of the notice of poll for the Edo state local government arguing that it puts all other parties besides the ruling APC in a disadvantage.

Chairperson of IPAC in the state Comrade Tracy Agoi said in statement that the State house of assembly and all concerned should do the needful by properly reconstituting EDSIEC and allowing of poor the mandatory 90- days notice of poll as enshrined in the Constitution.
