A faction of the Inter-party Advisory Committee (IPAC), Yobe Chapter also supported the postponement of the local government elections in the state.
Mr Abdullahi Bello, the IPAC Secretary Yobe State chapter stated this in a press release on Friday in Damaturu.
The other faction of IPAC under the Chairmanship of Mr Bala Mohammed on Setp 5 appealed to Yobe State Independent Electoral Commission to postpone local government elections scheduled to hold November to later time.
Bello said, Muhammed’s camp did not carry along other executive members before addressing press over the appeal for scheduling the election.
However, Bello said after extensive consultations, they also agreed that the election should be rescheduled to most appropriate time, give electorates the opportunity to fully participate in the campaign and election activities.
“By this, we wish to render our unreserved apology to all for our late decision.
“We take the decision to preserve the integrity of all political parties involve,” he added.
Bello also expressed gratitude to Gov Mai Mala Buni for the all-inclusive policies of his administration.
“We hope and pray that your government will accept the decision to shift the local government election to another appropriate date.”
