A female aspirant in Bauchi State, Mrs Maryam Alexander, has called on stakeholders in the 2019 elections to ensure a credible and fair process.
In Bauchi on Wednesday, she said that this would boost the confidence of Nigerians and the international community on the elections.
Alexander is vying for the state house of assembly from Dass local government under Green Party of Nigeria (GPN).
She said that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and security agencies have a great role to play to ensure that key players adhere to the rules of the game.
Alexander said that these two critical stakeholders must be strict in delivering their mandates without fear or favour during the process.
“INEC and security agencies are critical stakeholders during elections but from the by-elections that took place recently, I want them to be credible and fair to all political parties.
”The politicians and their followers also must play their part in this critical time in the country’s history,” Alexander, who is the Bauchi state Chairman of Change Women Association (CHAWA) said.
Alexander also called on the international organisations, the media and civil society organisations to observe the 2019 electioneering dispassionately and give priority to the interest of Nigerians.
She, however, commended media practitioners for exhibiting competence and professionalism in discharging their duties while reporting and monitoring political activities.
