RE – ELECTION CAMPAIGN: NNPP URGES INEC TO SANCTION DIKKO RADDA
I have come across the above bold headline by an online medium, The Links News, in which the story claimed that the New Nigerian People’s Party, NNPP, had petitioned the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to sanction the All Progressives Congress, APC, Gubernatorial Candidate, Dr. Dikko Umar Radda, over the infraction of the electoral law.
To put the records straight, Dr. Dikko Radda, has not started his gubernatorial campaign. What he did were meetings with party officials, no more, no less. In addition, the party, APC, had written to all security agencies and copied INEC, with the full itinerary on the said meetings with party excos at all levels.
An enlightened and educated person like Dikko Radda is not ignorant of the electoral law as to fall into that kind of breach either wittingly or unwittingly.
People should clarify issues first before jumping to conclusions. And the media should always try to balance issues before going to the press.
