The Kano State Independent Election Commission (KANSIEC) has released the schedule for the local government elections in the state scheduled for January 16, 2021. Preparation for the local government elections will begin on October 12, 2020.

Commission President Prof. Garba Ibrahim Sheka announced on Monday that, with the required 21-day interval, the commission will issue a 96-day notice before the elections to allow for proper preparation.

“We agreed to hold elections on January 16, after the expiration of the mandate of the elected officials of the council.

“The mandate of the councils expired on February 11 and we are conducting the election in accordance with electoral laws and constitutional provisions.

“48,000 ad hoc officials would be hired for the council election, including 44 election officials for each of the local governments,” he said.

Professor Sheka also said that the sale of nomination forms to candidates and interested parties would start from October 19, 2020, while the substitution of candidates by political parties would end on December 28, 2020.

Furthermore, he noted that electoral materials would not be imported to avoid the high cost of foreign exchange and delays.

He added that the commission would carry out awareness campaigns throughout the state to mobilize the electorate to participate in the elections.

Sheka reiterated the commission’s commitment to free, fair and credible elections while seeking the support of the media to ensure a smooth conduct of the elections.
