UPP celebrates with Christians

The United Progressive Party (UPP) has greeted Christians on the occasion of this year’s Easter celebrations.

The party in a statement said: “We enjoin Christians to use the opportunity of the Easter celebrations to rededicate their lives to God and service to the nation. They should emulate the sacrificial life of the Lord Jesus, Christ who died to save humanity, and pray for the nation as Nigerians go to the polls on 11 April to elect their governors and state legislators.

“We commend the electorate for the success of the Presidential and National Assembly polls on 28 March. We also commend the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for providing a level playing field for the political parties that participated in the elections through the use of card readers which reduced electoral malpractices. UPP has been in the vanguard for the use of electronic voting system in all elections. It is a step in the right direction. We hope the lapses in the Presidential and National Assembly polls will be corrected to ensure free, fair, transparent and peaceful governorship and state Houses of Assembly elections on April 11.
