INEC To Conduct Rerun, Bye-elections In 26 States this Saturday

 

Ahead of this Saturday‘s bye and re-run elections, across 26 states, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in collaboration with the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) is delivering materials to the affected locations. 

The election will hold in 80 local government areas in 26 states of the federation.

The commission, however, sought the support of the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) to expeditiously deliver materials to three locations in the North East, South East and the South West geo-political zones of the country due to the size and distance of some constituencies.

INEC chairman, Professor Mahmood Yakubu stated these when he visited the Chief of the Air Staff, Air Marshal Hassan Abubakar, at the Nigerian Air Force Headquarters in Abuja.

Yakubu said, the evacuation of materials from the focal airports to the states where election will hold will be handled by the commission and the Central Bank of Nigeria as has been the standard practice.

 

He said the inspection and movement of all materials to the various local government areas and beyond thereafter will be done with the full participation of all stakeholders, particularly agents of political parties and candidates, observers and the media in a transparent manner.
