Balarabe Musa, calls for postponement of Feb. polls

Share This

Abdulkadir Balarabe MusaFrom Femi Oyelola

Second Republic Governor of old Kaduna state, Alhaji Balarabe Musa has joined his voice to other Nigerians who suggested that next month elections should be shifted to allow the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC)to prepare very well, just as Comrade Isa Aremu, Vice President, Trade Union Congress, argued that the commission was prepared to conduct the elections.

Their argument came up at the launching of four books written by Isa Aremu, yesterday in Kaduna.

In his own view, Alhaji Balarabe Musa opined that since INEC may not be able to distribute the permanent voter cards to eligible voters before the scheduled elections; it would just be natural for the commission to postpone the exercise by more 60 days in order to address the issue.

According to him, if INEC would conduct free, fair and credible elections, it must not ignore the need for young people who are just clocking 18 years to be captured in the whole process so that the outcome could be generally acceptable.

Meanwhile, Comrade Isa Aremu, was of the view that in as much as the commission said it has no challenge bigger that what it could bear, elections would still hold as scheduled.
