The Kaduna State Peace Commission (KAPCOM) Election Monitoring  Committee has expressed its appreciation to the Kaduna State Council of Emirs and Chiefs, security agencies, the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), the House of Kaduna Family, numerous religious bodies, media organizations and practitioners for their contributions towards the peaceful conduct of the just concluded general elections.
Dr. Saleh Momale, executive vice-chairman of the commission, while addressing a press conference on Friday in Kaduna, also commended the various candidates and political parties for their disposition to the peaceful process and conduct of the elections.
He applauded the youths for rejecting calls to violence by a few desperate politicians.
“In view of the nature of the 2023 presidential, National Assembly, governorship and House of Assembly campaigns, we are appealing to political parties, the electoral bodies, the media and all stakeholders to refrain from incitements, provocation and exploiting existing ethno-religious divides in political discourse and campaigns. 
“Political campaigns should be guided by the provisions of the relevant legislations and guidelines. 
“Thus campaigns should be issue-based, reflecting the needs of the society rather than primordial sentiments,” he said.
Momale emphasized the need to continue to strengthen voter education, mobilization, and sensitization of the populace to deepen democracy and good democratic culture in the country.
The Elections Monitoring Committee also commended citizens of  Kaduna state for the peaceful conduct of the Gubernatorial and House of Assembly Elections.
“Based on reports gathered, the election was generally peaceful across the state.
“Similarly, priority was accorded to the elderly, nursing mothers and people with disability at the polling units, which is highly commendable,” he noted.
While observing that there were a few House of Assembly constituencies to be concluded, he urged the citizens to ensure that the bye-elections are also conducted peacefully.
