The group said that failure to prosecute them will undermine the 2011 elections.
The group in a statement signed by its national publicity secretary, Osita Okechukwu, insisted that its call for the prosecution of Iwu, Akunyili, Okiro and Adebayo was predicated on what it called the unfortunate and sordid record of maiming and killing of innocent Nigerians, burning of Ekiti State INEC office, loss of valuable properties too numerous to mention and monumental corruption, which undermined credible elections.
The group maintained that it was confident that more people definitely would be implicated in the course of the prosecution, as the evidence gazetted in the landmark judgment is “dripping with blood”.
The CNPP said: “We appeal to Mr President to carefully read the Justice Ayo Salami Panel’s unanimous judgment in order to come to terms with how Professor Maurice Iwu serially breached public trust and made free, fair and transparent election impossible.”
