The All Progressives Congress (APC), the ruling party in Kaduna State, has come under severe criticism recently by stakeholders including by the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Joining in the fray for a better deal for the people, the Kaduna State PDP Youth Patriotic Front, called to question, the decision of the APC government in the state, under the leadership of Nasir el-Rufai to live up to his electoral promises; top of which is “the conduct of
Local Government Councils elections in the 23 LGAs of the state, within the first three months of his administration”.

Speaking to journalists in the state during a press conference at the State Secretariat of the PDP in Kaduna, the President of the Kaduna state PDP Youth Patriotic Front, Comrade Danjuma Bello Sarki noted that, “under the law, if general elections into Local Government Councils cannot hold before the expiration of their term, the Kaduna
state Independent Electoral Commission (KDSEICOM) is required to prepare a detailed report to that effect for the consideration and deliberation of the House of Assembly.
