CRPDAI Wants APC Government Probed

Timipre Sylva


CONSTITUTIONAL Rights and Peoples Development Advocacy Initiative, CRPDAI, a civil rights organisation, wants the National Human Rights Commission, to investigate the alleged gross abuse of federal might by the All Progressives Congress, APC, during the inconclusive governorship election in Bayelsa State.

The CRPDAI in a petition filed by Emmanuel Christopher, its administrative secretary, on Sunday, January 3, demanded that the NHRC should “thoroughly investigate the allegations of violence, especially the role of pro-APC military men to perpetrate violence and disenfranchise the ordinary electorate. We believe that such acts of criminality perpetrated by any person, a political Party or uniformed men must be investigated and the culprits brought to book to serve as a deterrent to others.” The petition dated January 1 2016, was copied to the inspector-general of Police; director-general, Department of State Services; APC national chairman; Peoples Democratic Party national chairman; Governor Henry Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State  and Timipre Sylva, governorship candidate of the APC in the state.
