I’m Not Against Conduct Of 2015 Polls In Adamawa, Borno, Yobe – Shekarau

Governor Ibrahim ShekarauErstwhile Governor of Kano State, Malam Ibrahim Shekarau, yesterday denied reports in the media that he is against the conduct of elections in the North-Eastern part of the country as a result of the insecurity challenges confronting the region.

Shekarau had last week after visiting President Goodluck Jonathan at the presidential villa told State House correspondents that securing lives and property in the North-East was more important than conducting the 2015 elections in volatile states there.

His statement was condemned by many prominent politicians from the area including Governor Murtala Nyako of Adamawa State, who said Shekarau had ‘lost it’ since he joined the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, adding that the former governor is a disgrace to the North.

However, Shekarau, in a statement issued by his media aide, Sule Yau Sule, said he made the statement on the conduct of elections in the area based on his assessment of the current security situation.

“Our attention has been drawn to the news item on the conduct of election in the three states of the North-East where a state of emergency was declared. To make the record straight, his Excellency Malam Ibrahim Shekarau is not against conduct of election in those states but attributed such action to the assessment of the security in those areas”, he said.

He stressed that security of lives should always remain upper most, as security agencies are doing their best to ensure the insurgency in the affected states are contained before the elections.
