Bauchi State Chapter of Grassroots Network 4 Atiku, (GN4A) 2019, has charged the Independent National Electoral Commission INEC to provide a level playing ground for candidates of all political parties in the 2019 general elections.
The group, supporting the candidature of former Vice president, Atiku Abubakar made the call through its State Chairman, Alhaji Dahiru Muhammad Jamda and State Secretary General El-faruk Adamu Gado at the end of their meeting with officials of the 20 Local government areas of the State held in Bauchi over the weekend.
It called on INEC to conduct free, fair and credible election in 2019.
The group noted that looking at the way the electoral body conducted governorship elections in Osun and Ekiti States and National Assembly bye elections in some states is a clear sign that the electoral body needs to be up and doing to conduct the 2019 general elections.
“We are more concerned with the ongoing display of voters register, where we received series of complains of omissions misspelling of names of some of our supporters and appearance of names of dead people on voters register which we want the electoral body to correct these problems ahead of the 2019 election to enable real people with permanent voters card exercise their rights without hitches or hindrance of any kind,” the group stated.
The group’s chairman disclosed that, they held the meeting to strategise and get more support for the former Vice President, the presidential candidate of People’s Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate in the 2019 elections.
“Nigeria is in need of a competent leader like Abubakar and we met today to look in to the best way to reach the remaining people with permanent voters card that we didn’t reach in Bauchi State on his behalf and our meeting was fruitful one of hope, especially in the light of Nigeria’s current level of poor governance.”
