Ahead of the upcoming elections in Nigeria, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has restated its ban on voters coming with phones into the voting cubicle to tackle vote buying.
This statement was made by INEC Chairman, Mahmood Yakubu during the maiden briefing recently while expressing concern about the practice. Yakubu disclosed that all election materials have been distributed, including sensitive materials currently being delivered to local government areas, and non-sensitive materials deployed two months ago.
Also, he reported that 87 million Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) have so far been collected out of over 94 million registered voters and that the commission would continue to clean the register with technology.
Yakubu revealed that 1,642,385 polling units and political party agents would participate in the elections, and that staff had been trained.
According to him, the daily briefing aims to keep stakeholders updated on the events leading up to and during the election.
