NIGERIA DECIDES:ELECTION WILL HOLD IN FEW HOURS -INEC

 

 

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has debunked reports that the body was planning to postpone Saturday’s elections.

Presidential and National Assembly elections are scheduled to hold in few hours.

National Commissioner for Voter Education and Publicity at INEC, Mr. Festus Okoye, told DAILY POST Friday night that Nigerians should ignore the rumours.

His words: β€œIf stories are flying about, allow the stories to fly. What they are reporting is not true.”

Asked to respond to information that INEC commissioners were in a meeting, Okoye said: β€œYes we are in a meeting but we have not taken such decision.

β€œThis is election period and as commissioners, we meet every time”

Meanwhile, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, said his camp hadΒ setup a plan to rig the electionΒ Β in favour of the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, President Muhammadu Buhari.

However, the recent development of INEC offices being set ablaze in Abia, Anambra, and Plateau states by β€˜mysterious fire’, where thousands of electoral materials were burnt, could be major threat to the election.

Also, earlier on Friday, the commission in Niger State announced that elections for the senatorial positions of Niger East and Niger North may not hold on Saturday as the ballot papers meant for the zone were missing
