Youths under the aegis of Zealous Kwara Youths (ZKY), have called on both the Federal Government and the National Assembly not to confirm the nomination of the Chairman of the Kwara State Independent Electoral Commission (KWASIEC), Dr Uthman Ajidagba, as a Resident Electoral Commissioner of INEC. ZKY warned that his confirmation might bring anarchy to the state in no distance future.
The group gave this warning during a press briefing jointly addressed by its President, Vice-President and Secretary, Comrades John Adegboye, Babatunde Lawal and Ahmed Korede, in Abuja.
While noting that they had already petitioned the National Assembly on the matter, they lamented that his tenure as KWASIEC chairman has become source of controversy since 2013 up till now, saying that all elections conducted under his stewardship have always been trailed with disputes.
The youths while ruling out any ulterior motive for the move, also urged the Senate to set up a visitation committee that would visit Kwara state and interact with the various stakeholders of council elections in the state on the matter.
