The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Thursday commenced distribution of sensitive electoral materials in the twenty-one local government areas in Kogi State ahead of Saturday’s governorship election.
The distribution of the electoral materials was done on the premises of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) in Lokoja, the state capital. The distribution, according to reports, was done in the presence of representatives of political parties, observers, journalists and security personnel.
The materials distributed are ballot papers and result sheets for the governorship election.
A National Commissioner of INEC, Sani Adam, assured that the commission would be transparent in the conduct of the election, adding that all necessary mechanisms have been put in place to ensure the election is free, fair and credible.
“We are all set to go. We are ready. All the sensitive materials have been packaged according to their local governments. INEC is transparent and is ready for the election,” Mr Adam said.
