YPP Members Stage Protest At NASS, Demand Electoral Reform
Members of the Young Progressives Party (YPP) on Wednesday protested in front of the National Assembly demanding a restructuring of the nation’s security architecture.
Led by its national chairman, Bishop Amakiri the party members also called on the leadership of the National Assembly to ensure electoral reforms that will restore the confidence of the electorate in the nation’s electoral system.
Amakiri while speaking with journalists during the protest appealed to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the All Progressives Congress (APC) to desist from overheating the polity.
“We are concerned about the level of insecurity in Nigeria. Also at the moment, Nigerians are calling for the rejig of the security apparatus. If the country is suffering from insecurity it also means that the economic growth of the country is stunted.
“We also believe that the electoral reform is necessary, there’s no any other time than now,” Amakiri said.
He noted that it is unfortunate for the courts to decide elections after the citizens have made their choice.
They were received by delegates of the NASS who they eventually submitted their petition to.
