INEC fixes April 5 for Ondo bye-election

The Independent National Electoral
Commission (INEC) has fixed April 5 for the Bye-Election in Ilaje/Ese-Odo Federal Constituency of Ondo State.

The decision of the electoral body followed series of consultations with relevant stakeholders in the state which include political parties, security agencies and electoral officials.

The State Resident Electoral Commissioner,(REC) Akin Orebiyi who disclosed this in Akure, the State capital said it was resolved and agreed upon that the bye-election into the vacant seat of Ilaje/Ese Odo should hold after the House of Representatives had officially notified INEC of the death of Raphael Nomiye.

The Ilaje/Ese-Odo Federal Constituency seat became vacant following the death of Raphael Nomiye, popularly known as “Groovy” who allegedly slumped
and died in Abuja on November 22, 2013.

The INEC boss assured the people of the state that the electoral body would do everything within its capacity to ensure that the bye-election is devoid of rigging.

Orebiyi also noted that INEC was 70 percent ready to conduct the election, stressing that it would maintain its posture as an unbiased umpire.
