Despite damaged infrastructure, INEC will conduct credible polls, according to Edo Guber

In the upcoming governorship election in Edo State, Professor Mahmoud Yakubu, chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), has stated that the commission is prepared to hold a credible election.

Following last Friday’s devastating rainstorm that damaged vital infrastructure at the same INEC headquarters, Yakubu made this promise, promising to rebuild or replace the devastated facilities.

He also claimed that the Commission will borrow machinery from other states to make sure the Edo governorship election went off without a hitch because it is an off-cycle election.

While visiting the damaged infrastructure in Benin City, Yakubu said. In addition, he oversaw the collecting of Permanent Voters Cards (PVCs) and the degree of compliance with the ongoing Continuous Voters Registration (CVR).

He assured the public that the Commission was well-prepared for the upcoming elections in Edo State and Ondo, promising that the CVR would soon begin.

He made it clear that their mission was to address any issues that had arisen as a result of the election.

We arrived here last Friday to assess the damage to our facility; as a result, we will not be relocating anytime soon. We hope to address the issues we found here in the three months leading up to the election, and we think it would be better to hold the election here than to rent a new location so close to the big day.

“We took precautions before the last Edo governorship election, and in the three years following, we have encountered no problems; however, this is a miracle.”

Earlier, Dr. Anugbum Onuoha, the Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), stated that the flood may perhaps have been a gift in disguise as it has made them more election-ready.
