The Jigawa Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has advised politicians and other members of the public to channels their grievances concerning the 2019 General Elections through the constituted Election Petition Tribunal in the state.

The command’s spokesman, SC Adamu Shehu, gave the advice in a statement made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NNN) in Dutse on Friday.

Shehu also advised people of the state to continue to be law abiding throughout the period of elections and beyond.

“The Jigawa Command of the NSCDC wishes to appreciate the way and manner the Jigawa State residents conducted themselves during the Presidential and National Assembly polls.

“People went out and exercised their franchise in an orderly manner as expected without breach of the law, as no arrest was made by the command during the exercise.

“And anyone, who feels aggrieved after, should channel his case through the already established constituted authority, that’s the election tribunal, instead of causing breakdown of law and order.

“It is on this note that the command wants the public to continue to be law abiding and exhibit the same level of orderliness during the forthcoming gubernatorial and state assembly elections and after,” Shehu advised.

NNN recalls that the President of the Federal Court of Appeal, Justice Zainaab Bulkachuwa, on Feb. 28, constituted the Governorship, National and State Assembly Election Petition Tribunal for 2019 Elections for in the state. (NNN)
