Politics NCP calls for funding of political parties

The National Chairman of the National Conscience Party, Dr Yunusa Tanko in an interview with newsmen on Sunday in Abuja has called on the Federal Government to fund political parties to ensure level playing field in 2015 general elections.

He urged law makers to repeal Section 78 (2) of the Electoral Act dealing with deregistration of political parties, saying it did not augur well for Nigeria’s democracy.

He called on legislators to enact laws that would enable the electorate to choose the best party candidates for elections, which is the essence of internal democracy.

"Politicians should be concerned about programmes and projects that will add value to people’s lives and not how to acquire power and wealth.”

He also urged leaders of political parties to ensure that they upheld internal democracy for the peoples’ choice to prevail.
