He said there are IDP camps in 14 of the state’s 25 local government areas.

He blamed voter apathy during elections for the failure of political offices and appointees, claiming they often disassociated themselves from voters.

“This usually makes it impossible for those who voted them into office to contact them again.

“The next time you ask them to go out and vote, they are reluctant,” Egwu said.

Niger Police Commissioner

In his remarks, the Niger Police Commissioner, Mr. Monday Bala Kuyas, said that “the police do not rest on their oars to ensure the conduct of free, fair and non-violent elections in 2023”.

Kuyas said that the commando has recorded success stories in battling bandits in recent times.

“I assure all law-abiding residents 100 percent that a formidable safety net has been put in place to allow eligible residents to exercise their franchise without threat to life and property,” he said.

The police commissioner advised political party leaders and candidates to instill in their supporters to avoid all forms of violence and vandalism before, during and after the implementation of any electoral process.

Representatives from most of the registered political parties, members of civil society organizations and the media attended the stakeholder meeting.
