Nasarawa State Governor Engineer Abdullahi Sule has lauded the officials of Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) over timely distribution of election materials which paved way for early commencement of Governorship and House of Assembly elections in the state.
The Governor in company of his wife, Farida Abdullahi Sule stated this shortly after he cast his vote at Motor Park Polling Unit 002 Gudi in Akwanga Local Government Area of the state.
Engineer Sule after going through the required accreditation processes under the supervision of the electoral officials, casted his vote at exactly 10:00. am in his country home Gudi Station.
He also commended the electorate for their peaceful conduct so far and urged them to cast their votes without fear of intimidation from any quarter.
