The Adamawa state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has challenged the State Independent Electoral Commission to ensure that the November local government poll in the state is free and fair.
A member of the state’s Steering Committee of the party, Dr Umar Duhu disclosed this in an interview on Sunday, September 22 in Yola, the Adamawa state capital.
Though the party had confidence that there would be rule of law during the forthcoming local government election in the state, Duhu maintained in his statement that the party would not sit by and watch a subversion of due process in terms of electioneering and eventual announcement of results.
”we will ensure that the election is free and fair and whoever wins must be declared,” Duhu said.
While speaking on the reconciliation of aggrieved party members in the state, Duhu said the reconciliation was real and it would be sustained.
He said the three key players in the reconciliation are; the former governor of the state Umaru Bindow, Malam Nuhu Ribadu and Dr Halilu Modi and have recently met in Abuja, the Nigeria’s capital and publicly announced that they had forgiven one another and were ready to work together for the interest of the APC at the state and national levels.
