The January 2021 Local government elections in Kano state seems to be hanging in balance as the Peoples Democratic Party in Kano on Tuesday declared its decision to withdraw from the upcoming local government elections .

The Chairman PDP Caretaker Committee, Alhaji Danladi Kagara, who made the disclosure on Tuesday at a press conference, explained that the party was withdrawing from the election over lack of confidence and trust in the electoral process under Governor Abdullahi Ganduje.

According to the PDP, the January LG election will be reminiscent of the 2019 election, during which Ganduje was alleged to have manipulated the election processes, as well as influenced court verdict to return to power.

Our party; PDP, reminiscent of the conduct of the Ganduje-led administration during the 2019 general elections, have carefully studied the process and come to the conclusion that the APC-led government has grossly undermined the independence of the Kano State Independent Electoral Commission (KANSIEC) and therefore lacks the moral impetus to superintend any elections.

“The PDP and indeed the people of Kano cannot forget how Governor Ganduje and the APC, in connivance, with electoral officials used hoodlums and political thugs, as well as security agents to intimidate voters and disenfranchise the populace during the 2019 general elections that fraudulently brought the Ganduje administration into office by also manipulating the judiciary.

“Furthermore, it is due to the conduct of the Ganduje-led administration in the build-up to January local government election and how the APC members have turned the electoral process into a do-or-die affair.
