INEC fixes May 28 for Nasarawa House of Assembly bye-election
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has proposed May 28 for the conduct of bye-election for Nasarawa/Toto seat in the state’s House of Assembly.
The seat became vacant following the death of Musa Baba-Onwana, who represented the constituency in the assembly.
The deceased was a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The Administrative Secretary of INEC in the Nasarawa, Dr Mudashiru Mustapha made the proposed date for the bye-election known at a stakeholders’ meeting in Lafia on Thursday.
He, however, said that the date was subject to approval by the commission’s headquarters in Abuja.
Mustapha urged the political parties and stakeholders to begin preparation toward the election.
In attendance at the meeting were representatives of political parties, National Orientation Agency (NOA), media, National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), with all assuring of their readiness for the exercise.
Late Baba-Onwana died in his sleep on March 17 at the age of 50.
