The Kwara State Independent Electoral Commission (KWSIEC) on Sunday expressed its readiness to conduct Saturday’s local council election in the state.
The Chairman of the commission, Dr. Uthman Ajidagba, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Ilorin that necessary machinery had been put in place to ensure a credible exercise.
He said security agencies and other stakeholders had been contacted to ensure a successful conduct of the election.
Ajidagba, however, said only three political parties had signified intention to participate in the election.
He listed the parties as Social Democratic Party, Labour Party and Peoples Democratic Party.
Ajidagba, however, advised youths to abide with the rules guiding the conduct of the election and shun acts that could cause disaffection during the exercise. (NAN)
