Elections May Not Hold In Several North-West States Over Insecurity
Nigerian governors are of the opinion that elections may not hold in several north-west states as a result of the prevalent insecurity in the geopolitical zone.
North-west comprises seven states — Jigawa, Kaduna, Kano, Katsina, Kebbi, Sokoto, and Zamfara.
TheCable understands that the governors shared their perspective with President Muhammadu Buhari in a policy brief.
The governors also asked Buhari to look into the choice of running mate picked by Bola Tinubu, the APC presidential candidate, and its impact on north-west voter turn-out and commitment to the party.
They also called for an assessment of the outcome of the primaries conducted by the ruling party as well as the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Labour Party (LP) and New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP)...TAP.TO.READ MORE.
