The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) said it would not postpone the elections February 2014, despite fears raised in some quarters that preparations for the elections was not solid enough for it to hold as soon as next month.

Dr Ishmaeal Igbani, Chairman, INEC Electoral Training Institute, who spoke on behalf of the commission at a workshop for the training of security agencies in Abuja, said INEC was fully ready to conduct the 2015 elections, noting that the commission was comfortable with the fund it has at its disposal at the moment.

“Anytime there is election in Nigeria, there is always some form of tension. I have been around for a while, I don’t think it is something new. I don’t think people should be afraid. But it is also essential that we get ready just in case,” Igbani said.

“It is also very important that we have peaceful elections, it is also important that voters come out to vote without fear. It is also important that the personnel who will work for us and the environment itself is peaceful and for it to be peaceful, it is important for the security agencies to be alert and ensure that they do what they are supposed to do,” he added.

The Inspector General of Police, Sulieman Abba warned politicians in the country against heating up the polity through their negative utterances. He vowed that the police would not hesitate to deal with political actors who flout the electoral rules as stipulated in the Electoral Act.
