The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has started dispatching sensitive materials for this weekend’s Legislative re-run elections in Rivers State to the local government areas, the state Resident Electoral Commissioner, Mr Aniedi Ikoiwak said yesterday.
The materials, including ballot papers and result sheets, the REC said, would start arriving the state from today.
Mr. Ikoiwak further said training of ad-hoc staff for the elections was still ongoing in the local government areas.
“We are working, receiving materials and sending especially non sensitive to the local government areas.
“We are hoping that it will be a peaceful election. We are still training some of the adhoc staff in the local government areas. You know we have a timeline. We will be through with training collation officers soon as well”, he said.
