FCT Minister, Senator Bala Mohammed has commended INEC on the peaceful conduct of elections in the six Area Councils in the FCT.
Senator Mohammed, who described the election, held on the sixteenth of March as credible, free and fair, hailed the orderliness of the voters, security agents, polling officials and the entire residents of the FCT.
He also thanked traditional rulers, religious leaders and civil society organisations in the FCT for their support during the excise.
The Minister advised the FCT electorate to keep on with the same high spirit in future elections.
Senator Mohammed, however, attributed the low turnout of voters during the excise to fear of insecurity that has existed in some parts of the country recently, adding that many security agents were deplored during the election.
