Non-INEC states should hold LG - PDP elections


Wali Jibrin, Chairman of the Board of Directors (BOT) of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), urged the National Assembly to speed up the process of empowering the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to conduct all elections in Nigeria.

He made the call while speaking with reporters at his country home in Nasarawa state.

Jibrin spoke after the Nasarawa central constituency by-election.

The All Progressives Congress (APC) won the ballot.

Jibrin said most elections held at local government level in most parts of the country lacked credibility.

“If the National Assembly formulates a law that empowers INEC to organize all elections in the country, it will further strengthen democracy.

“This will allow the grassroots to elect credible leaders of their choice and ensure rapid development of the country,” he said.

However, he congratulated INEC for the peaceful conduct of the provisional election.

The BoT President called on relevant stakeholders and politicians to support INEC for the improvement of the electoral process.
