Elections: EFCC moves to tackle vote buying

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Friday, deployed its personnel across the states where Gubernatorial and State Assembly elections will take place on Saturday.

Wilson Uwujaren, the EFCC Spokesperson, said this in a statement in Abuja.

Uwujaren said the move was to make sure that the elections were devoid of financial malpractice, particularly the inducement of voters.

He said the teams led by senior officers started arriving at their assigned locations earlier on Friday.

According to him, a number of them, on arrival, held a consultation with officials of the INEC and other security agencies involved in election security.

He said, “Officers of Kaduna Zonal Command led by ACEII Mustapha Abubakar, who are on an election monitoring mission to Niger State, also met the Commissioner of Police, J.A Ogundele, to register their presence in the state.

“They also visited the Resident Electoral Commissioner of Niger State, Ahmed Yusha’u Garki.

“Officers of the Abuja Zonal Command on election monitoring duty in Nasarawa State, led by ACE II Adeniyi Adebayo, also registered their presence at the Nigeria Police Command Lafia.”
