INEC Restores Facilities Destroyed In Enugu

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) said it has restored the facilities destroyed by gunmen in various local government areas in Enugu State in readiness for the 2023 general elections.
In the last one year, INEC offices in seven local government areas were razed by gunmen, frustrating pre-election activities in the areas.

But speaking with The Nation in his office in Enugu, the state Resident Electoral Commissioner(REC), Dr. Chukwuemeka Joseph Chukwu, said the commission had since renovated the buildings and provided all the equipment necessary for the success of the 2023 elections in the affected areas.

“I want to tell you that I just signed the completion form for two of our LGA offices for one or two contractors.

“In Enugu State, we are reconstructing six local government offices of the INEC. They include Udenu, Nsukka, Oji River, Awgu, Ezeagu, Nkanu East and the rest of them. We have six of them and the seventh one is on the pipeline,” the REC said.

He added: “We have it in these categories: major and minor. Already, we have signed two. Within a week or two, others could be ready, except one local government area that was attacked few months ago. Before mid January, that office will be ready”.
