Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC has commended politicians and the people of Adamawa State over the peaceful conduct of the general elections in the state.
The Supervising National Commissioner of INEC for Adamawa, Gombe and Taraba, Dr. Nuru Yakubu, made the commendation Friday in Yola while presenting certificate of return to elected candidates in the state.
“I congratulate the people of Adamawa State for the peaceful manner they conducted themselves not forgetting the people of Madagali and Michika who turned out in large numbers to vote in the Internally Displaced Persons designated voting centres,” Yakubu said.
Yakubu tasked elected politicians to brace up for the challenge, adding that they represent a wind of change and that the electorates were expecting a lot from them.
He said INEC had changed under the leadership of Prof Attahiru Jega and there was no going back.
“We have now reached a level where we can say your votes have not only been counted but that they have also been counted. The new threshold of electoral service delivery set by INEC must never be allowed to be lowered.” Yakubu said.
In his remarks at the occasion, Adamawa Governor-elect, Sen. Bindow Jibrilla, who was among those that were presented with certificate, commended INEC for improvement recorded in the election and urged the public to accord those elected the needed support to succeed.
