Abbas stated that the State Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), Abdullahi Adamu Kaigama, cancelled the election due to the flimsy excuse of unsubstantiated violence at polling stations.
He noted that that the number of affected areas was not enough of a reason to call for the cancellation of the exercise.
