The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) announced that it had begun distributing sensitive election materials across Yobe.
The Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), Alhaji Ibrahim Abdullahi, announced this on Thursday at the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Damaturu branch.
“We are just one day away from the election day. What we are doing now is the distribution of these sensitive materials to the various electoral officers.
”From there, these materials will be distributed to the wards and polling units across the state.
“As they leave here with the materials, which are intact, they will go to their offices under full security escort by the military, police and other agencies.
“This is to ensure that the materials arrive safely for further distribution to the wards and polling units,” he said.
The REC enjoined all eligible voters to come out en masse to elect people of their choice on the election days.
Abdullahi said: ”The call is imperative because if they don’t come out, they may end up having the leaders that they do not wish to have.” (NAN)
