The inter Party Advisory Council (lPAC) comprising all the registered Political Parties In Kwara have rejected the plan by the state Government to extend the period of Caretaker Committees currently in the sixteen councils in the state for another three months period.
This was contained in a statement jointly signed by its Chairman, Alhaji AbdulRahman Omotosho, the Secretary, Mr Yinka Adepoju and the Public relations Officer, Comrade AbdulMumini Onagun in llorin.
The intra party advisory council which called on the state independent electoral Commission (KWASIEC) to conduct election in all the sixteen Councils rather than extending the period of the present care taker Committees noted that the caretaker Committees currently in place will endanger democracy in the state and deprive the electorate from reaping the dividends of democracy.
It would be recalled that the state House of assembly approved the constitution of caretaker Committees in November 2016 for period of three months which is expected to lapse by February 2017.
Reacting to the statement, the Senior Special Assistant on media and communication Muideen Akorede who spoke with our correspondent olarotimi oshin said either extension or no extension of caretaker period explained that government will not do anything outside the law that established Local government law.
He urged the group to take time in studying the law in a bid to understand any government decision.
