Kogi Gov’ship 2023: INEC Moves Election Materials To Abuja

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Lokoja has moved materials used for the November 11 governorship election in Kogi state to Abuja.

INEC’s chairman, Mahmood Yakubu, reportedly ordered the relocation of the election materials.

The materials, including election results, Biometric Voter Authentication System (BVAS), and other sensitive documents, were loaded onto trucks on Friday afternoon, departing under heavy security to the Federal Capital Territory.

It was gathered that the materials are no longer safe because of recent attacks on INEC officials, offices, and tribunal members by some political thugs. Therefore, the commission ordered the removal of the materials to a safe place.

Recall that the Kogi State Election Tribunal Petition had also moved its sitting from Lokoja to the National Judicial Council complex in Jabi, Abuja.
