The Resident Electoral Commissioner in Akwa Ibom State, Mike Igini, has warned against a repetition of the Third Term Agenda, amidst issues surrounding the provision for Direct Primaries in the Electoral Act.

Igini warned that a prominent recurring political challenge is always the inability of parties in organizing primaries without squabbles.

Meanwhile, the Commission Acts as the impartial umpire and Managers of the electoral process, hence possesses the knowledge advantages and downfalls of the different methods of different parties’ primaries that back up the concerns.

The Act, if amended, will affect how elections are conducted, depending on the significance.
