In view of the issues surrounding the CBN Governor’s declared political interest, INEC will directly deliver the sensitive materials for the Ekiti and Osun Governorship elections to the state offices of the Commission and not to the CBN state offices.

The INEC chairman Prof. Mahmood Yakubu stated this at an online forum organized by a civil society organization.

The decision he noted is as a result of concerns raised by citizens relating to the issues considering the sensitive nature of election materials and the need for trust and confidence in the electoral process.

However, the direct delivery of the sensitive materials to Ekiti and Osun are interim measures pending further discussions with the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) ahead of the 2023 General Election.

Prof. Yakubu commended the handling of materials by CBN since the collaboration started as there has not been a single incident of failure in that regard.
