The National Democratic Front (NDF), has described the recent wave of endorsements of candidates is an impediment to Nigerian democracy and if not discouraged may continue to deprive the people the right to choose their leaders as practiced in true democracy. Addressing pressmen during an interaction in Abuja, the National President of the front, Comrade Agbese Philip, said the recent endorsements of candidates in Ebonyi, Enugu and Kwara states which have a tendency to spread throughout the country is undemocratic and anti-democratic. Agbese who spoke on behalf of the other twelve political pressure groups present at the interaction, said the present endorsement has already truncated real democracy in the various political parties where other interested contestants had been denied due democratic process. The front which called on the leadership of the respective political parties to look into the matter and curb the repetition of such undemocratic practices and also hasten to revert or refute the said endorsements saying they portend to mean the zeal to rig in the forthcoming polls. “we hereby call on the stakeholders and leadership of the respective political parties to show their commitment to the continued practice of democracy by publicly denouncing these endorsements and further put deterrent measures to further happenings as this is an evidence that the forthcoming elections will surely lack transparency”. Agbese lamented. Meanwhile the group has threatened that if the said endorsements are not denounced and withdrawn, they alongside other interest groups had vowed to stage a peaceful protest to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), to press home their demand.
