Gubernatorial election: INEC distributes sensitive materials in Oyo [PHOTOS]


The Independent National Electoral Commission, (INEC) has distributed sensitive material meant for the gubernatorial and state House of Assembly elections in Oyo State.

The election is scheduled to be held in all 33 local government areas in the state.

The distribution of the sensitive materials on Wednesday was done at the premises of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Ibadan branch, located in Dugbe.

The process, supervised by the Resident Electoral Commissioner in the state, Dr Adeniran Tella, was witnessed by representatives of different political parties, security agents and other stakeholders.

Tella, while speaking, explained that the commission had built on the success recorded during the last presidential and National Assembly elections.

He added that INEC is ready to conduct free, fair and acceptable elections in the state.

“It is a tradition that we normally move our materials, particularly, the sensitive materials to the local governments, from the local governments to the RAC centres [and] to the polling units,” he said.

Tella added: “We have 33 local governments and we have watched and distributed our materials down, most especially the ballot papers that are meant for the governorship and State Assembly elections and this has been properly and systematically outlined so that there won’t be a mix-up.”
