Nasir El-Rufai, governor of Kaduna State says his main concern was to ensure that the LG polls in the state is credibly and transparently conducted.
He made the disclosure during an interview with journalists in Kaduna shortly after voting at Unguwan Sarki polling unit 024.
“We are interested in seeing credible elections”, he said, adding that the use of electronic voting machine has made the voting process simple, easy and credible.
He, however, said his only concern was that the accreditation was done manually instead of using the card reader.
According to him, the problem emanated from the refusal of INEC to allow the state electoral commission access to the card reader machines.
“I think is a good beginning and I hope it would end as it began.
“We heard of issues in two local governments of Jaba and Kaura in southern Kaduna. The electoral commission has to postpone the elections; they would fix a new date for the elections.
“We hope these two local governments will concentrate on security and logistics resources on the day of the scheduled election to avoid what happened there.”
Meanwhile, unofficial reports have it the main opposition party in the state the people’s Democratic Party, PDP is leading in the state LG polls
