Gombe State Resident Electoral Commissioner, Barrister Kassim Gaidam has urged candidates for Saturday’s election to emulate examples shown by incumbent President Goodluck Jonathan and the president-elect, General Muhammadu Buhari, on how to handle outcome of results in the interest of the public.
“I am more concerned about doing a peaceful election and finish in good time. We also expect the candidates to tow the lines of the president-elect and the present President and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces.
“We expect the candidates to follow the good examples set by them in the interest of our good people,” he said.
The REC said this while speaking on the commission’s level of preparations for the governorship and state legislative elections on Saturday.
He said the state office of INEC would build on the successes of March 28 where minimal lapses were recorded just as some of the security situations noticed during the exercise had been addressed.
He said one of such steps was to start distribution of electoral materials yesterday, unlike the presidential election where materials were distributed on Thursday.
The Deputy Commissioner of Police, Iwuka said every security arrangement for March 28 was still on ground and intact.
He reiterated that unauthorised organisations with all sense of uniforms would still not be allowed at the polling stations except the Peace Corps which had been co-opted by the INEC office in the state.
He said arrangements had been made for some polling stations which did not have security presence, adding that all those not authorised had been adequately communicated.
