INEC Should Conduct Credible Guber Election Rerun: IPAC
It has been reported that the Inter Party Advisory Council (IPAC), Adamawa chapter, has called on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to conduct a credible and peaceful Governorship rerun election in the state.
“The 2023 election has come and gone in some places, while in Adamawa, ours is inconclusive as declared by INEC.”
Bello Babajo, IPAC’s chairman in Adamawa, made the appeal at a news conference on Thursday in Yola.
INEC declared the governorship election inconclusive in Adamawa and scheduled for a rerun on April 15.
Mr Babajo noted that Adamawa is peaceful and has never experienced political crises.
“The 2023 election has come and gone in some places, while in Adamawa, ours is inconclusive as declared by INEC due to their own reasons.
Adamawa state is a peaceful State which has never experienced any political crisis in the history of political struggles,” the IPAC state chairman explained.
Mr Babajo added, “As you are aware, the constitution of Nigeria enshrines INEC with a responsibility to conduct elections and declare the winner.
We call on all citizens to remain calm as we continue to enjoy our peaceful co-existence as we pursue it in a legitimate procedure.”
According to him, to record a credible rerun election, the INEC chairman needs to deploy a new resident electoral commissioner to the state, pointing out that all political parties are ready to support and cooperate for credible elections in Adamawa.
