The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has confirmed that the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), has started taking delivery of sensitive materials for the conduct of the forthcoming general elections.
Festus Okoye, INEC National Commissioner and Chairman, Information and Voter Education, stated this while updating newsmen on the preparations of the commission for the elections on Wednesday in Abuja.
Okoye said that the CBN in various states had started receiving sensitive materials, including ballot papers and result sheets.
He also revealed that INEC had already taken delivery of non-sensitive materials, including voting cubicles, ballot boxes and writing materials at its Local Government offices across the country.
“For now, the commission is engaged in `readiness assurance’ for the elections that will take place on Feb. 16 and March 2.
“The different zonal stores and states and local government offices of the commission are presently taking delivery of non-sensitive materials for the conduct of the 2019 elections.
“The CBN, on the other hand, is taking delivery of sensitive materials for the conduct of the elections,” he said.
