INEC Distributes Non-Sensitive Materials For Edo Governorship Election


The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has commenced distribution of non-sensitive materials for the Edo State governorship election which has been scheduled to hold on September 10.

Sam Olumekun, Resident Electoral Commissioner of INEC in Edo State, told journalists during the exercise that the proposed time-table for the election is well on course.



    He also said that over four hundred thousand Permanent Voter Cards meant for Edo State are yet to be collected from INEC.

    During the distribution of the materials to the 18 local government areas of Edo State, staff of the commission were seen in numbers making necessary arrangement for the dispatch of the materials to their assigned destinations.

    INEC’s Assistant Director of Voters Education and Publicity, Sule Imodu, also said that as part of efforts to continue voters’ education, three operational vehicles have been earmarked for the three senatorial zones of the state to intensify sensitisation before the election.

    Imodu added that the welfare and security of INEC staff remain paramount hence adequate arrangement have been made particularly for those that will be sent to riverine areas.
