Sat, 22 Sep 2018

BUY OR SELL OLD AND NEW CARS, PARTS, CAR MATERIALS AS CAR MART NG LAUNCH IN NIGERIA

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) yesterday said it had perfected plans with the security agencies to decisively deal with anyone engaging in any illicit act, particularly the notorious act of “see and buy,” as it is called in local parlance, in today’s governorship election in Osun State.

Consequently, the electoral umpire has released phone numbers for complaints of any kind by the electorate, media and the public, while assuring the people of the state of its readiness to conduct a free, fair and credible election that would be acceptable to them.

The state Resident Electoral Commission (REC) of INEC, Olusegun Agbaje, while addressing journalists yesterday at the state headquarters of the commission on Gbongan Road, Osogbo, disclosed that the electoral body had distributed sensitive and non-sensitive materials to all the 30 councils in the state from the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and gave the numbers to lodge complaints as 08168963080, 07057789656 and 07086575910.

According to Agbaje, the situation room of the commission would be receiving complaints through these phone lines, adding that accreditation and voting would go on simultaneously between 8:00am and 2:00pm and “only those on the queue at 2:00pm would be allowed to vote,” while both staff and ad-hoc staff of the Commission that would participate in the conduct of the election have been made to “swear oath of neutrality.”

The electoral body also disclosed that it has concluded plans to make today’s election free and fair and model for subsequent elections.

Forty-eight political parties fielded candidates for the election.
