PDP Criticizes the Recurring Postponement of the LG Election in Kaduna

The Kaduna State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has criticized the movement of local government election in the state for the third time, by the State Independent Electoral Commission (KADSIECOM).

The party said in an announcement on Wednesday after its State Working Committee meeting that the commission should stop being influenced by external forces and face its statute with all sincerity.

The statement approved by Abraham Katoh, the party’s Publicity Secretary, said that the commission should not have fixed any date for the election when it knew that it could not do so.

It noted that KADSIECOM had initially scheduled the election to hold on June 4, but later shifted it to Aug. 14, and now Sept. 4.

“The commission had yet again, rescheduled the elections for 4th Sept. 2021, still not sure of the functional state of her equipment,” it added.

The PDP frowned against the recurring development and urged the commission to carry out its duty without any external interference so that it would gain the dignity of the citizenry.

The News Agency reports that the commission announced a shift of the election on Monday, citing the late arrival of batteries for the electronic voting machines it will deploy for the polls.
