Adamawa SIEC fixes date for council elections

Adamawa State Independent Electoral Commission (ADSIEC) has fixed December 4 for the local government council elections in the state.

Mr Daniel Zira, the spokesman of the commission, confirmed the development to newsmen on Thursday in Yola.

Zira said the commission shifted the election earlier slated for November 27, due to political parties activities which included their congresses.

“Adamawa State Independent Electoral Commission (ADSIEC) has fixed December 4, for the local government council elections in the state.

“The commission shifted the election timetable following a meeting with relevant stakeholders and political party representatives.

“So far, 18 political parties have shown their interest to participate in the December elections,” Zira said.

During the October 2020 EndSARS protest, the commission’s stores where primary election materials were kept were looted and destroyed.
