Political parties in the country have been urged to ensure that only credible and corrupt free candidates are allowed to contest in the 2019 elections.
This was contained in a press statement by the Progressive Mind for Development Initiative (PMDI), made available to New Nigerian.
According to the statement, PMID observed with dismay how political parties tolerate corrupt and dubious politicians buying nomination forms with the intent of contesting election.
“We know that there are credible, honest and upright Nigerians, who if given the opportunity will change the narratives of this country”, it stated.
” we therefore call on you to do away with all those who have any criminal charge of corruption against them” the statement added.
PMID also advised parties to ensure only candidate with proven integrity scale screening processes.
PMDI is a Civil Society Organisation, formed to advocate for human rights and good governance in Nigeria.
