The INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) in Sokoto State, Ibrahim Zarewa, has assured of a free, transparent and credible by-election for Kware/Wamakko Federal Constituency of Sokoto State for the House of Representatives seat scheduled to hold on October 28, 2017.
This is just as the Commissioner of Police in the state, Mohammed Abdulkadir, warned against thuggery and urged leaders of all political parties not to use the youths as tools for political violence.
It could be recalled that the seat became vacant following the death of Rep. Abdullahi Muhammad on July 14.
The two officials spoke at a stakeholders’ meeting organised by INEC in Sokoto.
The police boss said adequate security would be ensured throughout the exercise. On his part, Zarewa stressed that only people with permanent voters cards would be allowed to vote.
He said submission of nomination forms would end on October 17.
