The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) says it can’t curb financial Inducement of voters at the June 18 (today) Ekiti governorship election.
INEC national commissioner Festus Okoye made this known when he featured on Channels TV programme on Friday.
“INEC as a commission cannot guarantee that there won’t be any vote-buying in this election,” Okoye said.
He, however, explained that INEC had already partnered the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) to address voter inducement.
Okoye added that INEC had also trained ad hoc staff, who would assist the electoral body on the best way to position the voting cubicles to guarantee and maintain the security of the votes.
