Speaker, Taraba State House of Assembly, Dr Joseph Albasu Kunini has commended voters for their compliance to the COVID-19 preventive measures while voting during the council election in the state.
Kunini, who voted at the Pilot 1, unit 001 in Kunini Council Ward in Lau local government area said that he was impressed with the turn out of voters for the election.
The speaker also said that he was impressed with the orderly conduct of the electorate, describing it as peaceful.
He said that he was hopeful the ruling-Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) will carry the day in his LGA and across the state since the party was more popular and capable of steering the state to enviable height.
He added that the expected victory for the PDP was due to good governance and development strides by Gov. Darius Ishaku of Taraba.
Kunini said that the main opposition-All Progressives Party(APC) was not on the ground in the state to win elections.
According to him, the boycott of the election by the APC was due to the fear of defeat at the poLls.
DAILY ASSET recalls that APC earlier boycotted the local council election in the state.
The party accused the Taraba State Independent Electoral Commission (TSIEC) of being bias against it.
