"While we hail the INEC's decision to investigate the allegation, we want to restate our stand that the election, which was supervised by independent monitors (civil society organisations) is adjudged most peaceful in the history of Kano state". The occurrence of such incidence is a perceived act of irresponsibility on the part of INEC as an agency vested with the responsibility of supervising electoral process in the country.

"Who gave the children the voters cards?"

The governor said, "INEC does not have the capacity to hold free and fair elections".

It said: "Nigerians have completely lost confidence in INEC under Prof".

The party also called for immediate review of the register to remove the names of all under-aged persons before the 2019 elections. It goes to say that this INEC can readily announce false results, cancel elections, alter polling procedures and allow any irregularities during the 2019 general elections once it is threatened by the All Progressives Congress (APC) or any other group for that matter.

In a statement on Wednesday, the Chief Press Secretary to the INEC Chairman, Mr. Rotimi Oyekanmi, said, "You are cordially invited to cover the courtesy visit of the Forum of State Independent Electoral Commissions of Nigeria to INEC headquarters on Wednesday, February 21, at 2pm".

The Kano State Government has once again debunked claims that underage voters were allowed to participate in the just concluded Local Government elections, The Cable reports.

The opposition party also condemned the plan by INEC to ask EFCC to help in monitoring campaign funds pointing out that it "is clearly an illegal and Machiavellian way of suppressing opposition's financial contribution and spending".
