Empowering Democracy: PDP Stands Firm as Jigawa LG Polls Loom

In a bold stance against the recent push by the Inter-Party Advisory Council (IPAC) for a one-year extension of the local government council election in Jigawa State, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has unequivocally reaffirmed its commitment to the scheduled electoral process.

Alhaji Sa’adu Barwa, the PDP chairman in Dutse local government, dismissed the IPAC’s proposal as the brainchild of a select few rather than a reflection of broader sentiment within the political landscape of Jigawa State.

As reported by, the IPAC had advocated for an amendment to the state’s electoral law to afford political parties a 360-day lead time to prepare for elections. However, Barwa rebuffed this notion, emphasizing that the existing legal framework clearly dictates the tenure of elected officials. With the current term of the Jigawa State Government Council set to conclude in July of this year, Barwa urged the State Independent Electoral Commission to proceed with the organization of transparent and timely elections across all 27 local government areas and 287 political wards in Jigawa State.
