Ekiti poll: REC lauds process


The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has declared that voting in Saturday’s governorship election in Ekiti State recorded 90 per cent success.
The Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), Prof. Abdulganih Olayinka, disclosed this in Ado-Ekiti while assessing the electoral process.

He said that reports from the eight INEC Commissioners in the field indicated that the election was largely peaceful across the state.
Olayinka said he was glad to hear that all INEC personnel, including ad hoc staff, got to their various pooling unit in good time and the election started early and uniformly.
“Except for Agboyin Local Government Area where it was alleged that ballot materials were scattered on the ground and in one or two places where the card reader malfunctioned, all was well,” he said.

The REC added that identified problems in the electoral process had been addressed, adding that no “incident form” was used in the exercise.
