The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), says sensitive election materials will no longer be “routed” through the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).
Chairman of the Commission, Mahmood Yakubu, disclosed the development, on Saturday at an election dialogue, ‘The Electorate’, organised by Enough is Enough (EiE).
He said the decision is to guarantee that electoral materials for the lined up Elections are not compromised
Yakubu however noted that the electoral body has never had an issue with the CBN since the partnership started, but due to “current circumstances”, an alternative will be found.
He said the new measures would be adopted as early as the June 16 governorship election in Ekiti state.
