Any Party Can Win, We Don’t Care, But Credible Election is All We Want, Says El-Rufa’i


Kaduna State Governor,  Nasir El-Rufai, on Saturday said his major concern on the ongoing local councils election in the state is fair, credible and transparent, not which party wins.




El-Rufa’i spoke with newsmen in Kaduna shortly after he cast his vote at Unguwan Sarki polling unit 024.
According to him, his administration wants to set example that Nigerians can hold credible elections without distorting the process.
“We are interested in seeing credible elections “he said, adding that the use of electronic voting machine has made the voting process simple, easy and credible.He however said his only concern was that the accreditation was done manually instead of using the card reader.
“After all our engagement with the INEC and assurance, at the last minute to the elections they said they could not provide us with the six thousand card readers that we needed because they are preparing for Osun and Ekiti elections and the 2019 elections,” he said.
He also added that the election process was smooth, “after I was accredited the voting was smooth, it took less than 10 seconds, ” I think is a good beginning and I hope it would end as it began
“We heard of issues in two local governments of Jaba and Kaura in southern Kaduna. The electoral commission has to postpone the elections; they would fix a new date for the elections.“We hope these two local governments will concentrate on security and logistics resources on the day of the scheduled election to avoid what happened there.”
