The Yobe State Independent Electoral Commission (YOSIEC) has officially announced the postponement of the party primaries scheduled in preparation for the upcoming local government election slated for November 25 in the state.
This decision to delay the primaries was communicated through a letter bearing reference number YB/SIEC/GEN/VOL, dated September 14, 2023, and signed by Dr. Mamman Mohammed, the executive chairman of the commission. The letter, directed to all political parties in the state and titled ‘Reschedule of Party Primaries,’ states: “I wish to formally inform you that the party primaries, initially set for September 15, 2023, are now postponed indefinitely.”
As previously reported, the Inter-Party Advisory Council (IPAC) in Yobe State had called for the state’s electoral body to reconsider the date of the scheduled local government election. Bala Mohammed, the state chairman of the council, made this request while addressing the media in Damaturu, the state capital.
Mohammed explained, “As you are aware, the rainy season arrived very late. Now that the rain has intensified, our people are heavily engaged in farming activities. Currently, we are in the peak of the farming season in the state, which is not conducive for any political activities.”
