Edo: Heavy Security, As INEC Begins Distribution Of Sensitive Materials

Edo: Heavy Security, As INEC Begins Distribution Of Sensitive Materials

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has commenced the distribution of sensitive materials, ahead of Saturday’s Governorship election in Edo state.

Igbere TV had reported how the sensitive materials for the conduct of the election, arrived the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) office in Benin City, on Wednesday.

Early Thursday, our correspondent observed the inspection of the materials in cartons, including the ballot papers and the results sheets.

Also among the materials are the Braille ballot guide for persons with disabilities, especially the visually-impaired.

Igbere TV observed Thursday morning that INEC had begun the distribution of the sensitive materials to various Local Government Areas in Edo state.

It was gathered that the Inter Party Advisory Council, including party agents in the state were invited by INEC to inspect the materials at the CBN.

Some election observers including Yiaga Africa, told newsmen that, “everything is intact, we just inspected the materials and we are satisfied.”

Escorting the materials to the various local governments are security agents, party agents and election observers, who vowed to observe the movement of the materials to LGAs.

Mr Timidi Wariowei, INEC Head of Voter Education and Publicity in Edo, reiterated the Commission’s readiness for the Saturday election, as well progress made so far.
