Governor Saidu Dakingari
Kebbi State Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) has vowed to challenge the recent local government election conducted by the State Independent Electoral Commission (KEISEC).
Addressing journalists Monday at the party office, the state party secretary, Sheahu Marshall, said the election was blighted with chairmanship irregularities as under age voters were allowed to participate in the poll.
It could be recalled that People’s Democratic Party (PDP) won 21 seats in the local government elections while CPC won four councillorship seats. Marshall said CPC would take action to ensure justice and fairness in the poll, urging supporters to remain calm.
Meanwhile, the state governor, Saidu Dakingari, Monday swore-in the 21 elected chairmen of the councils. In his address, the governor appealed to the chairmen to live up to expectation and provide the dividend of democracy to the people. “I expect you to give education a priority so as to improve the lives of our children, and be prudent in your spending,” he added.
