The Enugu chapter of the Inter-Party Advisory Council (IPAC) has tasked the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to ensure that Saturday’s election rerun in Enugu is credible.

IPAC stated this in a communique signed by its chairman, Godwin Alor, after its extraordinary meeting in Enugu on Tuesday.

Mr Alor urged INEC to accredit credible observers to monitor the election.

He charged security agencies to provide adequate security before, during and after the election.

‘’The meeting noted with delight the improved security in the state, courtesy of Governor Peter Mbah.

‘’It commended the governor in this regard and urged him to continue in the same direction.

‘’The meeting further set up a three-man committee of elders to reconcile the various interests in the state chapter of IPAC before the rerun election,’’ he said.
