The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has been called upon to ensure that all electoral materials distributed across Nigeria before the election was postponed earlier today are secured.
The call to INEC was made by Inter-Party Advisory Commission (IPAC) in Oyo State, through its Chairman, Mr Waheed Oyewole during his reaction to the decision to postpone the elections till next weekend due to logistic reasons.
According to Mr Oyewole, the postponement was unfortunate but also noted that “it is better than to conduct a shoddy election that would be full of flaws.
“Imagine that INEC conduct election that many polling units receive sensitive materials very late or incomplete materials.
“The commission took a wise decision, but my worry is how the materials that have been distributed to some local government areas will not be tampered with.

“Let the commission in collaboration with the security agencies provide adequate security for the materials so that some unscrupulous politicians do not highjack the materials,” Oyewole added.
