MMWGN charges INEC to ensure safety of election materials, polling units.

 

Few days to the 2019 general elections, the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC has been charged to ensure prompt delivery of sensitive and non-sensitive election materials including relevant forms to polling locations and collation centers.

The statement, signed by the group’s national coordinator, Alhaji Ibrahim Abdullahi, further advised the electoral umpire to “make arrangement for maximum security at the polling units, collation centers, as well as its states and local governments offices to prevent the activities of political thugs who are likely to surface there in spite of several warnings from religious leaders and security agencies”.

It also called for “provision of security personnel and vehicles in polling areas with which erring voters, thugs and hoodlums could be conveyed to Police stations after being arrested for any electoral crimes”.
