The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC )has begun the distribution of non-sensitive materials to all thirteen local government areas of Nasarawa State ahead of the 2023 general election.
Nasarawa State Resident Electoral Commissioner Dr Uthman Ajidagba, inspecting the vehicles hired for conveying the materials from INEC state headquarters in Lafia, said the items were expected to arrive at the local government offices of the commission early enough before the elections.
Dr Ajidagba explained that the deployment of the non-sensitive materials is to allow timely distribution to Registration Area Centres as well as Electoral Wards across the state.
He noted that as the general election inches closer, INEC had stepped up preparations to ensure hitch-free exercise in all the polling units.
The INEC Commissioner pointed out that the non-sensitive materials include mats, ballot boxes, voters’ cubicles and election bags.
Daily Sun reports that over 9, 710 Permanent Voters Cards are yet to be collected adding that the figure is out of the total number of 122,697 PVCs meant for distribution to eligible voters in the state for the 2023 general election.
