Bauchi to hold council polls August 10

The Bauchi State Independent Electoral Commission, BASIEC, has concluded plans to conduct fresh local council elections on August 10, 2024.

Waploaded reports that this follows the dissolution of the previously elected councils a year ago by the State Governor, Bala Mohammed.

Addressing journalists at a press briefing on Friday, BASIEC Chairman, Ahmed Makama announced that the commission has issued a 60-day notice for the local government council elections, by relevant laws.

“If you calculate 60 days from today, it will be the 6th of August which is not a Saturday, and elections are usually conducted on Saturdays. We have therefore moved the election to Saturday, 10th of August 2024,” Makama explained.

“With this announcement, the sale of nomination forms has commenced, and interested individuals are encouraged to purchase them, “he added.

Makama urged political parties and other stakeholders to begin preparations to ensure a smooth election process.

He assured that the commission is ready to deliver free, fair, and credible elections, relying on the voter register maintained by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC since BASIEC does not maintain its own register of voters.

However, Makama reminded politicians that open campaigns are not permitted until 30 days before the election date, as stipulated by law.
