Election Postponement: IPAC Urges INEC To Secure Electoral Materials
The Inter-Party Advisory Commission in Oyo State, has urged the Independent National Electoral Commission to ensure that all electoral materials distributed before the election was postponed are secured.
INEC on Saturday announced the postponement of the Presidential and National Assembly elections by one week due to logistic issues.
IPAC Chairman, Mr Waheed Oyewole, made this call in his reaction to the postponement of the elections earlier slated for Feb. 16.
The chairman told the News Agency of Nigeria in Ibadan on Saturday that the postponement was unfortunate, noting “it is better than to conduct shoddy election that would be full of flaws.
“Imagine that INEC conduct election that many polling units receive sensitive materials very late or incomplete materials.
“The commission took a wise decision, but my worry is how the materials that have been distributed to some local government areas will not be tampered with.
“Let the commission in collaboration with the security agencies provide adequate security for the materials so that some unscrupulous politicians do not highjack the materials,” Oyewole stated.
