The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the ZASIEC had fixed today, Saturday April 27, to conduct local government elections in the state.
Tudu said that the commission deserved commendation considering its timely preparation and provision of all necessary logistics and materials for the elections.

He hailed the state government for organising the local government elections in the state in spite of the prevalence of security challenges in the area.

Tudu said that the team also observed that the state electoral commission was committed to conducting free, fair and credible elections in the state, by providing a level ground for all political parties to participate in the election.
