The Kaduna State Independent Electoral Commission (KAD-SIECOM) says it has concluded arrangements towards the successful holding of the forthcoming local government elections in the state.
The Electoral Officer in charge of Jema’a Local Government Area, Umaru Nuhu, gave the assurance on Wednesday during a one-day sensitization programme organised by Jema’a Foundation, held in Kafanchan.
Malam Nuhu explained that the commission has coded each electronic machine based on the voter register of each ward and polling unit which, he said, would make it impossible for anyone to cast his/her vote twice.
He said the machines have also been upgraded to use only Permanent Voters Card in casting votes.
In a remark, the interim chairman, Jema’a Local Government, Ibrahim Dayyabu Danladi, commended Jema’a Foundation for organising the meeting which, he noted, will go a long way to provide a peaceful atmosphere for a hitch-free election.
He appealed to those seeking elective positions in the forthcoming elections in the local government to caution their supporters against acts that could jeopardize the conduct of the credible polls.
