BREAKING: INEC allays fears on sensitive materials... Read details here


Nyok|18 February 2019 

The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC has allayed fears over the compromise by politicians of sensitive materials billed to be used for the already postponed general elections NEGROIDHAVEN has confirmed. 

The electoral umpire, Sunday, took to its twitter handle to address the issue particularly as it had to do with Kogi Central Senatorial District. The Commission disclosed that sensitive materials are in the custody of the Commission or vault of the Central Bank. 

The tweets reads thus, 'INEC's attention has been drawn to stories that ballot papers have found their way to the hands of politicians who are thumb printing same for their favoured party. Specifically, reference has been made to Kogi Central Senatorial District.

'This allegation is not true, as all sensitive materials are in the Commission's custody or in the Central Bank's vaults. The stamps in the ballot papers displayed do not represent any of the official stamps to be used in the forthcoming election.

'It should be noted that only duly stamped and dated ballot papers with the endorsement of the INEC Presiding Officer's signature are valid and will be counted.' 

However, the use of 'or' in the second paragraph of INEC's tweets has send waves of uncertainty on the part of the Commission. Is INEC not sure as to where the sensitive materials are?
