Gombe State Independent Electoral Commission (GOSIEC) is set to conduct local council polls on Dec. 19, says the commission’s chairman, Alhaji Saidu Awak.
During the programme for the issuance of notice of poll/conduct of LGs elections in Gombe to political parties in the state on Thursday, Awak said GOSIEC had given the mandatory 90 days notice.
“For us, it is actually 101 days notice of poll to all interested political parties which want to participate in the polls,” he said.
He called on all the political parties to conduct their primaries within the timeframe.
He further assured all stakeholders that the commission would organise free, fair and transparent elections come December.
Awak said copies of the election guidelines, notice of polls, timetable and nomination forms would be issued to all the political parties.
