#NigeriaDecides INEC Reassures Nigerians Of Preparedness For Tomorrow’s Elections

The INEC Chairman Prof Mahmood, has urged Nigerians to be vigilant and report any underage voter or their sponsors, trying to get accreditation, or trying to vote to the police, because INEC is working closely with security agencies, to ensure that the election is credible free and fair.

He said this while briefing stakeholders, today, in Abuja, ahead of the February 23rd elections.

In other news, INEC has bowed to the decision of the court of appeal and included the APC candidates in the governorship, legislative and state legislative elections in Zamfara State.

This much was made known in a press statement released by INEC on Friday, February 22.

The statement read: “The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has consistently maintained that it will always obey court judgments and orders.

“In the case of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Zamfara State, the Federal High Court, Abuja and the Zamfara State High Court issued conflicting orders relating to the participation of the APC in the two strands of elections scheduled for 23rd February and 9th March 2019.

“While the former ruled that the APC, having failed to conduct party primaries cannot field candidates in the said election, the latter decided that it can field candidates having conducted valid party primaries.”
