Taraba Youth Council task INEC on transparency


The Taraba State chapter of the Youth Council of Nigeria has advocated transparent governorship poll for popular candidate to emerge.

The Council also commended the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for conducting a transparent and rancour-free presidential/National Assembly polls fortnight ago.

The state chairman of the Council, Comrade Hikon Atoshi said that there were reported cases of hijacking of INEC results sheet in some part of the state particularly Takun Local government area in the last polls, urging security agents and INEC to guide against such reoccurrence.

He however commended youths in the state for the orderly manner they conducted themselves during the poll in line with Ishaku’s administration’s “peace matre.”

Mr Atoshi called on the Youths to come out in their numbers and ensure that credible candidate emerges in the continuity of transformation agenda of Governor Darius Ishaku.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had postponed the governorship and state house of assembly elections scheduled for March 11 to Saturday March 18.

It said following the ruling by the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal (EPT) on the reconfiguration of the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) used for the February 25 Presidential election, it met to assess its impact on its preparations for the governorship exercise.


State governors have equally availed themselves of the seven days provided by the postponement to further woo the electorate with intervention programmes, all in a bid to entice the voters.
