Chafe advised that for the election to be crisis free, there was for the Nasarawa State Governor, Alhaji Tanko Almakkura-led Governorship panel to extract commitment from all the aspirants through agreement on the delegates’ list.
“I will only advise that His Excellency , Alhaji Almakura should meet with all the aspirants before the primary and allow them to reach agreement on the list of delegates.
