We won’t participate in Adamawa council poll – APC insists


The Adamawa State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has reiterated its decision to boycott the local government election slated for next month.

The Adamawa State Independent Electoral Commission (ADSIEC) has scheduled the council poll to take place on July 13, 2024. Initially, the APC expressed readiness to participate but later decided against it, confirming that it would not partake in the election.

The youth wing of the party announced on Saturday that it has taken its opposition to the planned poll further by taking the electoral body and the state government to court.

In a communique signed by Khalil Sajo, the coalition of APC youth groups stated that they have dragged the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)-led state government to court “for hijacking the local government election process.”

The communique, issued immediately after the APC state leadership met with the Coalition of APC Support Groups at the party’s state secretariat in Yola, revealed that they deliberated on non-participation in the election and resolved that the party would not participate.

The communique, complaining about the composition of the Adamawa State Independent Electoral Commission members, among other issues, stressed that they could not ignore the anomalies.
