Lokoja - The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has said it will deploy three of its national commissioners and 11 Resident Electoral Commissioners (RECs) to monitor the conduct of the November 21 governorship election in Kogi State, reports Vanguard.

INEC chairman, Prof Mahmood Yakubu, who disclosed this in Lokoja on Tuesday at a governorship election stakeholders’ forum, said the deployment was in line with the commission’s resolve to ensure free, fair and credible election in the state.
