The chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Prof. Attahiru Jega while unveiling the Nigeria civil society situation room on Election Day said that the commission has commenced the distribution of sensitive materials across the country. The civil society situation room is made up of 60 civil societies.
He said ‘we expect that from Thursday evening until around Friday afternoon, all the materials taken to the local governments will also be distributed to the ward levels. At each ward level , we have established what we call registration area centre and we have equipped it reasonably to ensure that both our staff and security agencies spend the few hours of the night there in readiness to deploy very early in the morning to the various polling units in each of those wards.
He said INEC will adopt the 2011 method in announcing the results. He assured the civil societies that the 2015 general elections would continue to engage the civil society organisations to build on mutually beneficial relationship in future elections.
He added that from 2019 general elections, the INEC would move for the electronic transmission of results. The spokesman of the situation room, Clement Nwankwo said that beyond the partisan division and outcomes of the electoral contests, the future of Nigeria was the main issue at stake.
"They called Goodluck Jonathan, who gave you YouWIN and SURE-P, and PRESSID Scholarships clueless. So what do we call APC that gives you wheelbarrow? They said GEJ was tribalistic yet his NSA, CDS, IGP, CNS, CGP and minister of defense were from the North. So what do we say of President Muhammadu Buhari whose DG DSS is from his own hometown and whose Minister of Defense, Chief of Army Staff, Chief of Air Staff, NSA, IGP, CGP, CGI, CGP are all from his Northern Region? You see, no matter how far falsehood has travelled, it must eventually be overtaken by truth!"
