The Coalition of United Political Parties, CUPP, has said it agrees with former President Olusegun Obasanjo on all the issues he raised on President Muhammadu Buhari; Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) ahead of the forthcoming general elections.

The first national spokesperson of CUPP, Imo Ugochinyere, made the position of the parties known in a statement made available to journalists in Abuja.

He said: “CUPP agrees with all the issues raised in former President Obasanjo’s world press conference today (Sunday).”

He summarised Obasanjo’s position on Buhari, Osinbajo and INEC into 25 issues and said the coalition was on the same page with the former president on all the issues raised.

Specifically on Obasanjo’s concerns on INEC, Ugochinyere said the separate accreditation and voting method used in 2015 must be retained if the electoral body was committed to free and fair elections.

“For 2019 election to be free and fair, that separate accreditation and separate voting method used in 2015 election must be retained.

“Accreditation figures must be announced and recorded before voting starts,” he insisted.
