Jibrin spoke after the Nasarawa central constituency’s by-election.

The All Progressives Congress (APC) won the poll.

Jibrin said most of the elections conducted at the local government level in most parts of the country lack credibility.

“If the National Assembly formulates a law that empowers INEC to conduct all elections in the country, it will further strengthen democracy.
