The Nasarawa government guarantees credible local government elections.

The governor of Nasarawa State, Abdullahi Sule, has vowed to ensure that the elections in the state's 13 local government areas are free, fair, and credible. Elections are scheduled to take place in the state's 13 local government areas on February 16.

As part of his efforts to ensure a peaceful conduct of the council elections scheduled for October 6th in Nasarawa, Governor Sule made the pledge on Wednesday in Lafia while launching the Nasarawa State Independent Electoral Commission, NASIEC, Regulations 2021.

The NASIEC Regulations 2021, a 60-page document that contains 30 articles, would be binding on the Chairman and all members of the Commission, he said further.

According to the Governor, he would create a level playing field for all political parties competing in the elections so that leaders of goodwill would emerge as Councilors in the 147 electoral wards and Chairmen in the 13 local government areas (LGAs) of the state.

“I charge the Commission to put in place all necessary apparatus to ensure a smooth conduct of elections into elective posts in our local government areas, which are the third tier of government in the country,” he stated.

NASIEC Regulations 2021 are being presented today, he believes, and this is in continuation of the Commission's desire to provide legitimate elections in the state, he added.

Earlier, in his welcome address, the Chairman of the Nigerian Electoral Commission (NASIEC), Barr. Ayuba Wandai Usman, stated that the commission developed the regulations to guide election processes in the state.
