INEC distributes sensitive materials ahead Ondo Assembly poll [Photos]

Ahead of Saturday’s election for the Ondo State House of Assembly, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) delivered sensitive materials yesterday to the 18 local council areas of the state.

The distribution of the materials took place at the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Ondo State branch, in the presence of journalists and leaders of political parties, who closely monitored the process.

Among other things, the sensitive materials distributed include ballots and result sheets.

Only the House of Assembly election, in which 17 political parties will run, will take place in Ondo State on March 18.

The state’s acting Resident Electoral Commissioner, REC, Oyekola Oyelami, stated that the commission is prepared to hold a credible election in the state while reviewing the materials.

During the just concluded presidential elections, which were held on February 25, none of the Bimodal Voter Accreditation Systems, BVAS, according to Oyelami, had issues as they all operated flawlessly.

Oyelami promised that on election day, voting materials will be delivered early to all polling places while also stating the elections would surpass the just concluded presidential election.

He urged the electorate to cast their votes for the candidate of their choice, noting that those chosen will represent them in the State House of Assembly.

The State Chairman of the Inter-Party Advisory Council (IPAC), Mr. Olaoluwa Adesanya, expressed satisfaction with the material inspection.
