The Emir of Kanam, Alhaji Babangida Mu’azu, and the Chairman, Panskhin Local Government of Plateau State, Mr Samuel Goar, has commended the peaceful conduct of the Presidential and National Assembly elections.

They both commended the electorate in separate interviews with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Kanam and Pankshin Local Government areas respectively for their peaceful conduct.

While describing the election as “a success” despite the hitches in the accreditation of voters, Mu’azu said the maintenance of peace was “paramount and laudable.”

“We have every reason to thank the Almighty God for the way and manner we as Nigerians in this part of the country went about the election.

“It is my hope that we shall all accept the result of this general election because power is only given by God,” the monarch said.

The royal father stressed the need for politicians to eschew violence whenever the results of the election are declared by INEC.

The council boss, however, urged INEC to improve on the use of the card readers, which he said brought about the delay in voting in most if not all polling units in Pankshin.

The chairman applauded the use of the Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) and Card Readers as innovation that will eliminate rigging of elections in the country.
