THE Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Friday distributed sensitive and non-sensitive materials for Saturday’s by-election in Mayo/Belwa State Constituency of Adamawa.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the by-election will be conducted in seven polling units of Mayo/Belwa State Constituency.

The election tribunal had canceled the results from the areas and ruled that only Ibrahim Musa of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Musa Mahmud of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) were eligible to re-contest for the by-election.

Malam Adamu Gujungu, the INEC official who supervised the distribution in Yola, assured of the commission’s commitment toward free, fair and credible election.

“We just finished the distribution of sensitive and non-sensitive materials including the ballot papers and result sheets at the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) premises Yola, and as a commission, our promise is to provide a level play field for all the contestants.

“We have seven units which cut across the three registration areas for the supplementary election on Saturday and we have made necessary security and logistic arrangements to ensure a hitch-free poll,” he said.

He urged political parties and their supporters to conduct themselves in an orderly manner to ensure a peaceful poll.(NAN)
