Disqualified, Failing Drug, Kano, Polls

After the compulsory drug test run by NDLEA on all the candidates vying for the 44 Chairmen and 484 Councillors, six candidates have been confirmed drug addicts and were disqualified from the race.

Six candidates have been disqualified over their failure to pass a drug test ahead of the January 16 local government polls in Kano State.

Daily Trust reports that KAINSEC said it introduced the compulsory drug test for all candidates vying for Chairmanship and Councillorship positions in the forthcoming local government elections because of the prevalence of drug abuse in the state.

The Chairman of the commission, Professor Garba Ibrahim Sheka, who confirmed this while speaking to Daily Trust on his commission’s preparations for the election, said they have detected six drug addicts among the candidates.

He said, “After the compulsory drug test run by National Drugs Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) on all the candidates vying for the 44 Chairmen and 484 Councillors, six candidates have been confirmed drug addicts and were disqualified from the race.

“All the confirmed addicts were contesting for councillorship slots. None is going for chairmanship.

“Their parties are lucky to have this week as a window period for them to substitute their replacements as we won’t allow any of them to contest,” Sheka said.
