Transition Monitoring Group (TMG), Civil Society Legislative Advocacy Centre (CISLAC), and the Kano state civil society have denied calling for the cancellation of the gubernatorial election in Kano. 

A coalition of domestic election observers had asked the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to review the governorship election in Kano state over “irregularities”.

In a statement on Sunday, CISLAC and TMG said they are not party to the demand.

The CSOs said they will never interfere with the conduct of elections.


“We assure the public that we have never at any time issued such statements nor been a party to such conclusions. We strongly believe in democratic approaches to settling elections disputes and encourage all who are not satisfied with the process to seek redress in the court of law,” the statement reads.

“We warn sternly against the illegal use of our names to spin narratives that are capable of further heating up the polity and creating chaos in Kano state and in Nigeria. Any further misuse of our names in this direction will be met by litigation.”

The CSOs added that “we stand by our earlier recommendations on the part of INEC and other stakeholders to improve the elections in Nigeria”.
