Conducted Bye-Elections Into Three Vacant Seats In Senate

The Peter Obi Support Network has advised the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to quickly conduct bye-elections for three vacant Senate seats.

Three seats became vacant in the Red Chamber about four months ago following the resignation of the occupants.

The vacant seats are Nasarawa West Senatorial District, Borno North Senatorial District and Zamfara Central Senatorial District in the National Assembly.

The seats were declared vacant following the emergence of Senators Abdullahi Adamu and Abubakar Kyari as the National Chairman and Deputy National Chairman (North) of the All Progressives Congress respectively on March 26.

While Senator Muhammad Hassan Nasiha resigned on March 1 after he was named as the Deputy Governor of Zamfara State.

In an interview with The Punch on Tuesday, the spokesperson of Peter Obi Support Network, Onwuasoanya Jones, said INEC is wrong not to have conducted bye-elections into three vacant seats.

Jones said it was against democratic norms and standards for a people to be deprived of representation, even for a single day or even a minute.

He counselled INEC not to waste any more time in conducting the elections to fill those vacancies.
