Ahead of the governorship supplementary elections scheduled for March 23, the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has assured critical stakeholders in Plateau that it would conduct a free, fair and credible election in the affected areas.

Mallam Halilu Pai, the Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) in the state, gave the assurance at a meeting with leaders of various political parties and other stakeholders on Saturday in Jos.

The March 9 governorship election in the state was declared inconclusive because the margin in the votes polled by the two leading candidates was less than the votes cancelled in some polling units.

A total of 48,828 votes were cancelled across 40 polling units in 19 wards of nine local government areas.
