The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, on Friday took delivery of sensitive materials for Saturday’s rerun election in Nnewi North and Orumba North local government areas of Anambra State.
DAILY POST reports that security agencies, representatives of political parties, civil society organisations, in partnership with INEC, inspected the materials before deployment to the two local government areas.
The distribution exercise took off from the Central Bank of Nigeria in Awka.
INEC’s Resident Electoral Commissioner, Dr Elizabeth Agwu, informed newsmen that the sensitive materials included ballot papers and result sheets.
She said that the BVA machines had been handed over to Electoral Officers.
“We have completed 50 per cent of our work and we are ready for the election on Saturday. I want to urge the adhoc staff to be proactive to ensure smooth process.
“There will be no movement in the areas where the election will hold from 8:30 a.m. when voting will start to 2:30 p.m. when voting will end.
“I want to assure the electorate that every person on queue will vote before close of time,” she said.
