The Kaduna State Independent Electoral Commission (KADSIECOM) has announced the suspension of council elections in four local government areas of the state scheduled for Saturday, 4th of September 2021.
This was announced by KADSIECOM chairman, Saratu Dikko-Audu, during a press briefing on Friday.
According to her, the elections in Chikun, Kajuru, Zangon Kataf and Birnin Gwari LGAs were postponed for security reasons.
She said, “I have been reliably informed by architecture within the state that security reports in the state would make it impossible to peacefully conduct local government council election in a number of local government areas.
“Consequently in order to protect lives and property including those of elections and materials, we have had to suspend the election in a number of local government areas and reschedule election in these local government areas for a later date after consultation with members of the commission.
”The state Independent Electoral Commission has decided to reschedule the local government councils in the following local government areas; Birnin Gwari, Chikun, Kajuru, Zango Kataf.”
