Abuja - Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) says it will ensure a credible governorship election in Ekiti State on June 21.
Kayode Idowu, the Chief Press Secretary to the chairman of the commission, gave the assurance on Monda in Abuja.
He said adequate preparations had been put in place, including the deployment of election materials and other logistics to ensure fair and peaceful election.
Idowu said the commission had also customised its election’s result sheet, making it impossible to deploy a result sheet from one ward to another.
"Then the issue of people not finding their names on the voters’ register will not happen this time because we are using permanent voter’s card.
"Anybody who has a permanent voter’s card is guaranteed that his name is on the register at the polling unit where he registered," he said.
Idowu said that although the commission was optimistic that it would have a successful election in Ekiti State, collaboration of all stakeholders would be needed.
He said while the commission would deploy a substantial number of its commissioners to Ekiti State on Saturday for supervision, the chairman would anchor the election from the Situation Room in Abuja.
