The Kaduna State Police Command has warned all political parties and their candidates to strictly abide by the Electoral Act towards ensuring peaceful 2023 general elections.

The Command also warned parents and guardians not to allow their wards to be used as thugs and troublemakers before, during and after the elections.

Addressing executive members of the Kaduna State Council of Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), who paid a courtesy call to the Command, the State Commissioner of Police (CP), Yekini Adio Ayoku said there would be watertight security at the polls so that the election would be smooth without hitches in all parts of the State and the country.

Ayoku expressed satisfaction with journalists in the State, saying that he has not had any bad media reports against his Command since he assumed office.
