Kaduna council polls: Youths hailed for peaceful conduct

The emir of Zazzau, Ambassador Ahmad Bamalli, on Saturday said e-voting is the way forward in Nigeria’s electoral system.

The Youth Wing of Moro’a Development Association on Monday commended youths in Manchok for peaceful conduct in the just-concluded elections in Kaura Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

President of the socio-cultural group, Mr Jerry Bonet, gave the commendation when he spoke with newsmen in Kaduna.

“I appreciate the youths for sticking to their pledge of peaceful conduct before, during and after the announcement of results.

“This has helped in sustaining the relative peace we have enjoyed in the local government area.

“I am sure that some persons had to make painful sacrifices by suppressing their egos to ensure that the election was peaceful.

“We are very grateful to all that put the interest of our communities and that of the local government area, for the success of the election,’’ he said.

Bonet also commended security agencies, officials of the State Independent Electoral Commission, ad-hoc staff, party delegates and other stakeholders for ensuring a rancour-free poll in the Kaura Local Government Area.

Mr Mathias Siman of the PDP won the chairmanship seat in the election.

He polled 19,505 votes to defeat his closest opponent, Mr Adamu Donatus of the APC who garnered 10,942 votes.
