Yero stated this in an interview with journalists shortly after casting his vote at Kwankira polling unit, Kaura Ward of Zaria Local Government Area of the state.

He said that the call became necessary in view of the importance of peace in national cohesion, and also appealed to the people to be law abiding and remain calm during and after the polls.

The governor commended the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for distributing election materials in good time.

Alhaji Garba Yusi-Anchau, the Sole Administrator of Kubau Local Government Area, who also spoke, urged the people to be patient, as this was the first time of using card readers for election in Nigeria.

“Card reader is a new machine introduced to ensure free and fair elections; therefore we must be patient to achieve the desired result.

“I want to use this medium to appeal to people of Kubau to sustain the prevailing peace in the area by accepting the election outcome in good faith”, he also advised. (NAN)
