Osun 2022: INEC distributes Sensitive Materials to LGAs under Heavy Security
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Thursday moved sensitive materials to local government areas in readiness for the June 16 governorship election in Osun State.
The distribution and movement exercises were done under heavy presence of security agencies at the INEC state headquarters in Osogbo. Journalists, local and international observers, security agents and political party agents witness the distribution, loading and movement of the materials.
The Resident Electoral Commissioner, Prof. Abdulganiy Raji, while handing out the materials, said the electoral officers would take the items to their councils where they would be sent to the polling units on Saturday morning.
He expressed the hope that there would be no late arrival of materials to polling units on Saturday. Raji said the ballot papers were colour-coded and customised in the name of each of the 30 local government areas and Modakeke Area Office to discourage electoral malpractice.
He also noted that the result sheets were also customised according to the polling units.
Some of the materials distributed were Bimodal Voters Accreditation System, BIVAS machines, Ballot papers, Result sheets, Booklets, Forms EC 8A, B, C, D,E, forms EC 4zero G, 4 zero G1 and 2.
