The Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) has urged Nigerians to keep faith with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

The forum, in a statement by its National Publicity secretary, Muhammad Ibrahim Biu, said though elections shift should have been done earlier to reduce cost and inconveniences for all the parties concerned, Nigerians should restrain themselves from any act of lawlessness capable of jeopardising the democratic process of free and fair election in the country.

The Forum further called on INEC to use this one week to ensure adequate preparations are put in place for successful re-scheduled elections.
