Zamfara State holds council poll on July 25




THE Zamfara State Independent Electoral Commission (ZASIEC) has rescheduled the state’s council election for July 25 following the approval of Governor Abdul’aziz Yari Abubakar.

ZASIEC Chairman, Garba Muhammad Dambura, who disclosed this at the weekend, said the commission would this week release a comprehensive timetable and public notice for a smooth council transition in the state.

According to him, the tenure of the incumbent council chairmen would expire next month, therefore he appealed to all stakeholders to give the commission the necessary support and cooperation to ensure free and fair poll.

Meanwhile, the state’s Ministry of Health disclosed that Zamfara has not recorded any polio case in the past three years. The Director of Primary Health Care, Yusuf Musa Mafara, said in Gusau over the weekend during the state taskforce meeting on immunisation that the success was attributable to state, Federal Government and development partners’ financial and other logistics support in improving routine immunisation.

Mafara, represented by the Immunisation Officer, Aliyu Idris, noted that in 2006, the state had over 60 cases of polio meningitis. He expressed happiness, however, that no polio case was recorded across the state in the past three years.
