Senator Jibril Condemns Conduct Of Nasarawa LG Polls

Senator Walid Jibril, Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) Board of Trustees, has branded the recently concluded local government elections in Nasarawa State as “horrible and barbarous.”

He described the anomalies perpetrated by the Nasarawa State Independent Electoral Commission (NASIEC) in order to help the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) win the election as unforgivable.

Jibril said this at a press conference organized by the PDP in Abuja, lamenting how democracy had been damaged in the Nasarawa election to favor a certain party.

“All PDP members in the Nasarawa local government area have decided not to participate in the current elections,” he stated.

“The detrimental role performed by NASIEC during this election has suppressed not only the PDP, but also other political parties that participated in the exercise.” In fact, the number of abnormalities I witnessed made my head spin,” Jibril explained.

Jibril praised the state governor, Engineer Abdullahi Sule, for his effective leadership style in creating a favorable environment for the state’s excellent citizens.

He stated that the governor had previously made positive words about how the LGA election would be conducted, and that the fear of God had prompted opposing political parties to express interest, but that the entire process had been plagued by irregularities.

With what has happened, he believes the election should be called off and rescheduled for another day, or else the PDP will dispute the election in court.

Meanwhile, Hon. Attahiru Osu, the PDP chairman in Nasarawa local government area, has described the election as a calculated attempt to benefit the state’s ruling APC government.
