INEC Plans Credible Poll Despite Damaged Facilities.

INEC Plans Credible Poll Despite Damaged Facilities.

Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Professor Mahmood Yakubu has expressed the Commission’s readiness to conduct a credible governorship election in the forthcoming governorship poll in Edo State.

Yakubu who disclosed the assurance following last Friday’s heavy downpour that destroyed critical infrastructure at the same INEC office, said,  the affected facilities would be repaired or replaced, stressing that, since the Edo governorship election is an off-cycle election, the Commission would also borrow equipment from neighboring states to ensure a hitch-free exercise.

Yakubu who spoke in Benin City while inspecting the damaged facilities also monitored the level of compliance with the on-going Continuous Voters Registration, and collection of Permanent Voters Cards said, the Commission was prepared for the election in Edo State and the next one in Ondo, where he said the Continuous Voters Registration would commence very soon.

Speaking earlier, the Resident Electoral Commissioner, Dr. Anugbum Onuoha, said, the flood could be termed a blessing in disguise as it has better prepared them for the election.
