Officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Gwaram Local Government council in Jigawa State, have stopped the LG Chairman, Dan Asabe Muhammad, from voting.

The mild drama which played out at the Kofar Fada polling unit in Sara ward started when the local government chairman approached the election officials to vote without a voter card.

It was gathered that Muhammad, came to the poling unit in a convoy, and urged the INEC officials to compromise the use of card readers just to allow him cast his vote.

The request was however turned down by the presiding officer of Kofar Fada 001 polling unit who denied the chairman the opportunity to vote without his card.

“The chairman who took time to explain that he has misplaced his card but has crossed checked and saw his name pasted on the wall with no 597 as his designated number but politely told him that, “I m sorry sir, I know you’re the council chairman but I cannot allow you to vote without your voters card, that’s the rule”. the presiding officer stated.

The electoral officer stood her ground that the chairman will not vote despite pressures from the police officer and politicians in the company of the chairman.

The chairman left the polling unit fuming that he was denied the right to vote.
