The New Nigerian People’s Party, NNPP, in Katsina State has filed a petition before the Independent National Election Commission, INEC, against the state’s All Progressives Congress governorship candidate Alhaji Dikko Radda for engaging in election campaigns prior to the date set by INEC.

INEC had set October 12th for the commencement of governorship and State House of Assembly campaigns and September 28th for the commencement of Presidential and National Assembly campaigns.

The statement which was signed by the NNPP state Chairman, Alhaji Sani Liti, quoted section 28 of the Electoral Act 2022 as Amended which detailed the relevant provisions of the law.

“We write to notify you of the violation of the relevant section of the electoral law and pray that the violators shall be punished according to the provision of the law.

“We invite the honourable commissioner to recall that the relevant section of the law provides for the commencement of campaigns and a timetable for the campaigns.

“We have noted with dismay that the APC candidate, Umar Dikko Radda, has commenced his campaigns in Baure, Zango and Sandamu Local Government Areas in total disregard for the provision of the law”, the statement says.

The NNPP Chairman urged INEC to arrest and prosecute the violators of the law led by the APC guber candidate, Dikko Umar Radda and make them face the full wrath of the law.
