The Green Party of Nigeria (GNP) has described Saturday’s local government elections in Kano State as a great disappointment and disgrace to democracy.
GPN also called on the Kano State Independent Electoral Commission (KANSIEC) to recall the elections.
This was contained in a statement jointly signed by the party’s Chairman, Alhaji Mannir Maisikeli, and Secretary, Alhaji Ibrahim D. Ungogo.
GPN alleged that elections were marred by irregularities, saying the elections were not held at all in some places.
The party said in other areas “political hooligans” churned out threats to innocent voters thereby denying them opportunity to exercise their constitutional right.
Leaders of the opposition party also alleged that the attitude of the APC-led government in the conduct of the elections had brought shame to the state and its people.
“We finally call on KANSIEC to recall the elections and start afresh, otherwise we will advise our legal team to seek for relief as appropriate,” they said.
