The chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu met with Oba of Benin, Oba Ewuare II on Thursday ahead of the highly anticipated Edo state gubernatorial Elections.

He was welcomed by the Oba alongside his entourage. Yakubu earlier met with the Inter Consultative Committee on Election Security (ICCES), in Benin. He assured that the commission was ready for the elections.

“The whole purpose of this visit is to see firsthand the level of preparation. Yes, we received reports at the headquarters but we feel that it is important to come to Benin and see for ourselves what is on the ground.

“On Feb. 6, 2020, the commission released a timetable and schedule of activities for Edo and Ondo governorship elections. We gave seven and eight months notices for the Edo and Ondo elections respectively.”

“And we itemised 14 activities in the timetable and schedule of activities to be carried out on specific dates beginning with the publication of the notice of election and ending with election day proper.”

He also revealed that the commission was committed to ensuring a safe environment for the peaceful conduct of the election.
