INEC re-evaluates strategy for Edo polls

The National Commissioner, Information and Publicity for INEC, Solomon Soyebi, on Monday in Abuja, said that the commission was re-assessing its operational strategy to ensure a hitch-free governorship election on July 14 in Edo State.

Soyebi said that the commission would enforce a high standard of integrity and transparency to make the outcome of the election acceptable to all the stakeholders.

He said INEC had worked out logistics to ensure that electoral materials get to various locations early as scheduled.

Soyebi said INEC would create a level playing ground and secure the polling arena for the safety of all.

The commissioner said the safety of corps members and all other officials participating in the July 14 elections would not be compromised.

According to him, every vote would count and “it would be one man one vote and the actual election results would be declared.”

“The integrity we are going to bring to bear on the Edo election would not be different from what we have done in 2011,” he said.

“INEC will spare no efforts to ensure peaceful conduct of the poll; we are going to create a free and fair election. We will be totally impartial and unbiased.”

The commissioner said to ensure total transparency, the election would be witnessed by the highest number of electoral commissioners, journalists as well as foreign observers.

He said to ensure secured election environment, INEC was improving on its working relationship with the Inter-Agency Consultative Committee on Election Security (ICCES).
