Adamawa shifts council polls to December 4

The Adamawa State Independent Electoral Commission (ADSIEC) has postponed the election of chairmen and councillors into the 21 local governments of the state to December 4, 2021.

The election, initially scheduled for November 27, has been shifted forward by one week.

“The new date for the election has been scheduled for 04th December 2021 instead of 27th November 2021,” ADSIEC said in a statement.

The statement, signed by ADSIEC Head of Information, Daniel Zira, explained that the shift followed a meeting with representatives of political parties in the state.

“At the meeting presided by ADSIEC Chairman, Mallam Isa Shettima, some crucial observations were made which necessitated the shift of election date,” Zira stated.

“Observations were made on the earlier released time table which led to some changes on the table to suit the activities of political parties”, he added.

The current chairmen and councillors were elected on December 7, 2019.
