23 July 2021 By Chris Nyamtu

African Democratic Congress, ADC has called on the Nassarawa state Independent Electoral Commission, NASIEC to reduce the cost of nomination forms ahead of the forthcoming Local Government election in the state.

Chairman of ADC in the state Mr. Godwin William made the call during a media briefing at the end of a meeting of party officials in Lafia the Nasarawa State capital.

According to Mr William, the selling of nomination forms at the cost of five hundred thousand Naira for chairmanship and two hundred thousand Naira for councilors by the commission was high and tantamount to discouraging political parties especially the opposition from fielding candidates for the election.

The ADC Chairman who said the party would participate fully in the election however stressed the need for Governor Abdullahi Sule to ensure credible, free and fair election that would be acceptable to all parties.
