He stated this while reacting to questions by selected Journalists ahead of Council Election which there was no tangible preparation for Local Government poll by the electoral umpire, Nasarawa State Independent Electoral Commission.

 

According to the APC Chairman, “as a party which, believe in internal democracy, the Local Government elections should hold before the expiry date of May 2021.

 

This reaction was coming at a time that some political parties in the state are losing their membership on a  daily basis.

 

John Maman said the ruling party would ensure a level playing ground for all during the unscheduled Council poll in the state.

 

While commenting over the complaints that marred the registration and revalidation of new entrants into the party fold says more membership cards would be provided to qualified persons.
