INEC chairman warns staff against electoral fraud

The Chairman of Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, yesterday, warned the staff of the commission in Anambra State against involvement in electoral fraud. Yakubu gave the warning, when he addressed the staff of the commission at the INEC state headquarters, Awka, ahead of this weekend’s governorship election. The INEC boss said that anybody caught in electoral malpractice would be dealt with in accordance with the law.

“Every INEC worker must ensure that we all achieve our set goal of making Anambra November 18 governorship election flawless and historic,’’ he said. He added that Nigerians and indeed people outside are watching INEC in its resolve to make Anambra governorship election the best in the history of the commission.

“INEC will be holding two elections in Anambra on November 18, the governorship election and the state Assembly election for Idemili North state constituency; you must discharge your duties diligently.

“There are many people out there working seriously to see that the commission fails in its commitment to record free, fair and credible election and you must have this in mind. INEC will get rid of you if you do the wrong thing, and you are aware that those caught in the web of such negative act during the conduct of 2015 election are still facing the music,’’ he said.
