Why Kwara Govt can't conduct LG election- APC

Why Kwara Govt can't conduct LG election- APC

The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kwara State on Thursday explained why the state govern­ment cannot conduct the council polls for now.
It said that given the present economic reality, the state cannot afford to spend over N1billion on council election.
The AUTHORITY re­ports that the tenure of the current leadership of the 16 local government chairmen ends on No­vember 10.
The state government is tinkering with the idea of constituting a Tran­sition Implementation Committees (TIC) for the councils in order to save scarce resources.
The APC in a state­ment by its Publicity Sec­retary, Sulyman Buhari, dismissed a media report which suggested that there is a brewing cri­sis in the party over the nomination of members of the proposed TIC.
The statement reads: “It is utterly untrue that there exists brewing cri­sis in our party over the appointment of persons into the Transition Im­plementation Commit­tee. Therefore, we urge members of our party in Kwara State to disregard the misleading report.
“While it is true that the leadership of the party has requested for the submission of names across the 193 wards in the state, we want to emphasise that we have experienced administra­tors in our party.
Therefore, we can as­sure party members and the people of Kwara State that the nomination pro­cess into the proposed Transition Implementa­tion Committee will be hitch-free. The party will ensure justice and equity in the entire process.”
