Muhammad appealed for cooperation from all the stakeholders in the state for a successful election.

“This gathering is essential and a prelude to the great expectations towards a hitch free, fair, credible and successful conduct of this great task ahead.

“Individuals and collective responsibilities are necessary and we owe it a duty to live up to the confidence reposed in each of us in this regard.

“In the light of this, I urge all the participating registered political parties and security agents to swing into action with regard to campaigns, rallies and primaries,” he said.

The SIEC executive chairman said the commission has set up a special committee of experts for mass enlightenment and mobilisation of voters across the state.

“Similarly, inputs would be given out regularly whenever the need arises in the event of any further development,” he told the stakeholders.

Muhammad disclosed that the election body had conducted recruitment, training and posting of adhoc staff as well as conveyed election materials to its zonal, local government and ward offices.

According to him, the commission has received necessary funding from the state government ahead of the local councils election.
