Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Professor Attahiru Jega, will personally umpire the Anambra governorship election to ensure a credible election on November 16.
He will be assisted by 21 commissioners and 15 Resident Electoral Commissioners (RECs). The INEC Administrative Secretary, Mr Oscar-leo Amaechi, who made this known at a stakeholders meeting of Inter-Agency Consultative Security Committee with political parties and candidates, reiterated the preparedness of the commission to conduct free and credible poll.
He urged political parties to submit the names of their agents on time to enable the commission train them on their roles during the election, warning that INEC would not allow substitution of agents on Election Day.
He disclosed that INEC would move election materials to registration centres close to polling booths to ensure that the election commenced at exactly 8 a.m.
