Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu

The Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, has revealed the Commission spent N100m on the failed attempt to recall Kogi-West lawmaker, Senator Dino Melaye.

According to Punch, the INEC chairman made the revelation while responding to a question posed by this reporter at a press conference in Abuja on Friday.

Yakubu said the figure was nowhere near the N100bn being bandied by the Peoples Democratic Party.

He said a recall exercise is just like conducting a Senatorial election, adding that Kogi-West which Melaye represents, has 552 polling units and seven local governments.

The INEC boss said ad hoc staff were deployed in all the polling units.
