Why we will not act on tribunal judgements now –INEC

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has urged the electorate in Ondo State to be orderly and observe Covid-19 protocols during the governorship elections.

INEC made the call on Friday through Mr Festus Okoye, National Commissioner and Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee of the electoral body, during an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).

He further urged the electorate to wear their face masks while going out to cast their votes in the Saturday governorship election in the state.

“It is important that voting takes place without compromising the health of the citizens. “People should wear face masks or face covering in their interest and the greater interest of society.”
