The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has given assurance that the forthcoming governorship election in Ondo State will be an improvement over last month’s governorship election in Edo State.
The commission said it was ahead of schedule, in terms of preparation for the Ondo polls.
The Director, Voter Education and Publicity of INEC, Oluwole Uzi, stated this yesterday in Abuja.
According to Uzi, INEC will be putting to use the few things learnt in the Edo election.
He also noted that unlike the Edo election, INEC is not envisaging an inconclusive election.
He further said the 16,723 personnel to be deployed on the Election Day have been trained and know what to do.
Uzi also noted that all sensitive materials are on ground with proper logistics in place.
He said: “We are on ground. We have printed voter register for the election. We have gone very far. We are well ahead of schedule.
“We can even do better than what we did in Edo. Like I said, we are ahead of schedule. We have learnt a few things. Some good things we did right in Edo we hope to do better and the things that did not go on so well we hope to correct them, the few lapses”.
