We Are Ready For Gubernatorial Poll – INEC Assures Nigerians

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has stated its readiness for the gubernatorial and state house of assembly elections coming up on April 11.

On Tuesday March 31, the INEC noted that the high level of  rejected  votes across  the country showed  a dangerous trend that needed to be sorted by the commission in partnership with the political parties.

The commission’s Public Relations Officer (PRO) in Ekiti State, Taiwo Gbadegesin, told journalists that the figure of votes that were invalid across the country, especially in the state, was a matter of concern, adding that INEC is ready to offer Nigerians credible and acceptable elections during the next Saturday’s governorship election, as every arrangement has been put in place for smooth conduct of the poll.

“Virtually all state offices, including Ekiti are done with presidential/National Assembly polls since reports of the outcome of the last exercise had already been submitted to Abuja, and have, unknown to many Nigerians, shifted attention to intense preparations for the last lap of the exercise on April 11,” he said.

Gbadegesin expressed regrets that rather than improve, the situation got aggravated in the last Saturday’s poll exercise as several thousands of votes were again cast wrongly by the electorate, despite weeks of mobilisation and sensitisation of voters by INEC, NOA and other agencies of government.
