#iPGN: CONFAB: Defectors to lose seats – Delegates


The National Conference has proposed that all elected public office holders who move from one political party to another before the expiration of their tenure without any cogent reason should lose their seats forthwith.

The decision which was taken during the consideration of the report of the Committee on Politics and Governance headed by Prof Jerry Gana and Chief Olu Falae as a co-chairman resolved that  the  electoral umpire, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the State Independent Electoral Commissions (SIECs) are to fashion out ways to ensure that physically-challenged persons, especially lepers, are registered and are able to vote in elections.

On anti-corruption and ethics in governance, delegates accepted the proposal that anti-graft agencies (ACAs) especially the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and Independent Corrupt Practices and related offences Commission (ICPC), should take up any corruption case that is in the public domain without waiting for prompting of a petition.

It said the refusal by the anti-corruption agencies to act on any corruption case brought to their knowledge shall constitute an act of misconduct, criminal negligence or dereliction of duty that will attract sanctions for their officials.
