The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) says it would commence distribution of sensitive materials for the Nov. 16 Bayelsa State governorship poll on Friday.
Mr. Wilfred Ifogah, INEC Head of Department, Voter Education and Publicity, made this known on Thursday in Yenagoa in a message to journalists.
According to him, sensitive materials will start leaving Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) office in Yenagoa by 7 00 a.m., on Friday to Registration Area Centers (RACs) across the state.
“The sensitive materials include ballot boxes, papers, card reader machines, inks among others,” he said.
Mr. Monday Udoh, the state INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) urged members of the Inter-party Advisory Council (IPAC) in the state to observe the movement of the materials across the state.
“The materials are safe and secured at the CBN; IPAC would like to go and observe them,” he said.
