Executive Director, Conscience for Human Rights and Conflict Resolution (CHRCR) Idris Miliki Abdul has raised concern that results are yet to be declared 90 days after Local Government elections in Kogi State.
In a statement that was signed by Idris Miliki Abdul, the civil society said the elections were conducted in Kogi State on the 12th of December 2020.
The CSO lamented that the State Independence electoral commission (SIEC) was yet to release the results to the public.
Despite colossal amount claimed to have been spent on what he referred to as kangaroo elections, in a digital age by the state government, “the SIEC in the state despite having a website, has refused to announce results.”
He said, “Investigation carried out and the complaint received by CHRCR, many of those engaged during that period that performed one role or the other are yet to be paid their entitlements, which he said is corruption despite the huge amount provided in the 2020 budget.”
“For the purpose of records, research and documentation, transparency and accountability, we are calling on the Kogi State Independence Electoral Commission and the States Government to release results without further delay.”
“The statistical data of the local government council elections conducted on the 12 December 2020 should be made public.” The statement read.
