Specimen Ballot Paper, 2019

‘We are surprised when our representatives went to the INEC office yesterday and even today for the sorting out the electoral materials and discovered that the logo of our party was deliberately missing on the ballot paper of the Senatorial and House of Representatives elections in where we have candidates in Ondo state.

‘We are urging the INEC to do the needful, to either give us the opportunity to participate in the election tomorrow or postpone.

‘Whatever way they want to do it, we believe that since the court has ordered that our candidates should be given an opportunity to perform their rights and our supporters and members would be disturbed if they get to the post tomorrow and find out that the Labour Party is missing on the ballot papers.

‘We express our displeasure over the issues and we believe that the INEC is a responsible body that will do the needful and ensure that we are able to participate in tomorrow’s election.

‘If INEC fails to do the needful, the party will not hesitate to take legal action on the issues.’
