The solidarity group of Senator Haruna Garba, People Democratic Party, has warned its members against breaching the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) guidelines for the forthcoming general elections.
The group in a release yesterday advised its members to adhere to the INEC guidelines stressing that the electoral body had warned political parties and aspirants against violating its ban on political campaigns, which has not been lifted.
The group therefore, cautioned its members and supporters against acts capable of breaching the guidelines set by INEC.
“The Senator Haruna Garba Solidarity Group is therefore using this medium to tell the world that we are law abiding citizens and will always ensure we play the game according to the rules.
“Nobody should in the name of this group or that of Senator Haruna Garba violate the guidelines set by INEC,” the group said.
It further added that as law abiding citizens committed to a peaceful and transparent election, members of the group would conduct their activities within the limit of the law as provided by INEC and the constitution of the country.
“We call on all our followers to avoid provocative and abusive language as well as distant themselves from sentiments and inciting statements that will bring rancour in the political process,” the group said. The group equally solicited the support of the media towards attaining their objectives.
It would be recalled that the guidelines recently released by INEC regarding the 2019 general election, Presidential and National Assembly elections would hold on February 16 while the Gubernatorial and state assemblies elections would hold on March 2. Political campaigns are expected to begin 90 days to Election Day.
