The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the seat occupied by Aminu Shagali, a former speaker of the house, was declared vacant in April, after he was alleged to have absconded from activities of the assembly for more than 360 days.
“We are only pleading with them to live up to expectations by keeping to their words. Let INEC be independent and fair to all.
“As a party, we are approaching the polls with optimism of emerging victorious,” he said.
“The party will be willing to accept the outcome of the results of the polls, but if it turned out otherwise, we will react.
“We will certainly not accept the results if it happens that the mandate of the people is compromised.
“We have been assured of a level playing ground and we will hold authorities concerned by their words,” Hyet added.
NAN reports that the June 19 polls will hold in Chika, Muchia, Jushin Waje, Hanwa, Dogarawa, Unguwan Gabas and Zabi wards of the council.
The parties according to INEC are: the All Progressives Congress (APC), Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), People’s Redemption Party (PRP), African Democratic Congress (ADC) and Action Democratic Party (ADP). (NAN)
