The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has rescheduled another supplementary election for Ajaokuta constituency of Kogi State for tomorrow, Tuesday 28, April, 2015.
This followed the crisis that marred the exercise at the Local Government Headquarters in Adogo on Saturday.
The Resident Electoral Commissioner, Alhaji Hussein Halilu Pai disclosed this while speaking at the stakeholders meeting, held at the state INEC Headquarters in Lokoja on Sunday.
Pai stated that this became necessary in order to find a way forward by conducting election into the seven polling units in the area.
The REC explained that the commission had received a report that the result sheet and ballot papers were not available at the polling units at the time of voting, adding that the commission has taken steps to investigate the cause of the problem and appropriately sanction anybody found wanting.
“The commission will not use Corps members resident in the constituency for this reschedule election. We have applied for non-sensitive and sensitive materials, and Smart Card Readers are going to be used for the election which would be conducted on Tuesday, April 28, 2015,” he said.
