Ammani noted that the contemporary security challenges were such that they required political parties to support and work closely with the police and other security agencies during the campaigns and 2023 general elections proper.
 

“I charge you all to eschew all forms of bitterness, rancour, thuggery and conduct your campaigns in the most peaceful manner, while being guided by extant laws and rules governing such activities.
 

“The police will put in place necessary security during the period and solicit political parties’ support, especially in the area of timely provision of information on their activities.
 

“Political parties and their gladiators should also promptly volunteer security information and intelligence to the police for proactive security actions,” he said.
 

INEC Head of Legal

The state’s INEC Head of Legal and the Chief Security Officer, Mr Humphrey Okolie and Mr Chima Ani, who represented the state’s Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), said that INEC was committed to providing a level-playing ground for political parties.

“The commission will continue to work closely with the police, other security agencies and all stakeholders in general towards the conduct of a peaceful, fair and credible 2023 general elections,” they said.
 

Contributing, the leaders of political parties in attendance raised issues of concerns that were deliberated upon.
