The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has come out to say that it fulfilled its constitutional duties in the conduct of the November Governorship and Supplementary polls in Kogi State.
Director, Voter Education and Publicity (VEP) in the Kogi office of the commission, Ahmed-Bagudu Biambo, revealed this at a Post-Election Dialogue on Kogi State Governorship Election on Thursday in Lokoja.
According to him, INEC made electoral materials available and ensured they got to their several polling units on time.
Speaking on the violence, thuggery and other malpractices that took place, Ahmed said INEC cannot be held accountable and cannot answer for it.
He feels there is a missing link in Nigeria’s electoral system and that could be the reason for the widespread violence during the election.
He added that INEC is conducting an independent review of the election to know what happened.
