Inter-Party Advisory Council (IPAC) has commended the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and voters in Yobe State for the peaceful conduct of the general elections.
The council’s chairman in Yobe State, Comrade Bala Muhammad gave the commendation while speaking to newsmen in Damaturu on the general conduct of the national exercise.
According to IPAC the conduct of all candidates and their supporters were very peaceful throughout the electioneering exercise in the state, with the security operatives carrying out their duties professionally.
“The Council commends the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for substantially adhering to the provisions of the law in conducting both the presidential and National Assembly elections, as well as the governorship and state assembly elections here in Yobe state,” he said.
He added that, it has become evident that the above factors gave INEC the support to organise free, fair, transparent and incontestable elections in every part of the state.
“There were no reports of intimidation, vote buying or any act inimical to the Electoral Act throughout the state. Yobe State is, therefore, a role model of clean elections in Nigeria,” the Council added.
