Borno LG Election: Zulum hails peaceful conduct
Borno Governor Babagana Zulum has commended the State Independent Electoral Commission for hitch free conduct of Saturday’s local government councils poll.
Mr. Zulum said this shortly after voting at his Ajari Ward in Mafa, headquarters of Mafa Local Government Area (LGA) of the state.
“So far, so good,the electoral commission and other stakeholders should be commended for this election.
“The turn out is impressive and the conduct peaceful. This election can be compared with 2019 election.
“I am satisfied with what I saw on ground,” he said.
Six political parties- African Democratic Congress (ADC), Accord Party, All Progresss Congress (APC), All Progressives Grant Alliance (APGA), Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Social Democratic Party (SDP) fielded candidates for the poll.
Ravaged by over a decade of Boko Haram onslaught, the Northeastern state has barely kept itself afloat.
Governor Zulum is unapologetically determined to restore normalcy and relocate displaced citizens to their abode though threats of insurgency are still rife.
