The Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof Mahmood Yakubu, is gearing up for a crucial high-level meeting concerning the upcoming governorship elections scheduled for November 11 in Kogi, Imo, and Bayelsa states.

This significant development aims to ensure the proper coordination of security measures for the elections.

Security Assurance for November Elections

During a recent visit to Kogi State, Prof Mahmood Yakubu, the INEC Chairman, confirmed that he would convene a high-level meeting next week Friday in Abuja.

This meeting will be attended by the National Security Adviser (NSA), Nuhu Ribadu, and top service chiefs.

The primary focus of the meeting is to discuss and strategize security arrangements for the governorship elections in Kogi, Imo, and Bayelsa states.

Mock Accreditation and Confidence-Building

As part of INEC’s preparations for the upcoming elections, a mock accreditation exercise was conducted in the three states where elections will take place.

This exercise serves to test-run the technologies that will be deployed during the elections and to enhance voters’ confidence in the commission’s activities.

Assurance from Security Agencies

Prof Mahmood Yakubu expressed his satisfaction with the cooperation and assurance from security agencies.

He noted the presence of security personnel during the mock accreditation exercise, underscoring their commitment to ensuring the elections’ security.

This collaboration between INEC and security agencies aims to create a safe and secure environment for the electoral process.

Method of Accreditation and Result Upload

The INEC chairman clarified the procedure for accreditation and the upload of election results for the upcoming gubernatorial elections.

The process involves electronic accreditation and electronic upload of results on the IReV portal.

This technological approach adheres to the law and ensures transparency and efficiency in the election process.

Access to Mock Results

Furthermore, Prof Mahmood Yakubu encouraged registered voters to access the results of the mock accreditation exercise.

He directed them to visit the IReV portal, where the mock results from all three states would be available for review within a few hours.

These efforts by INEC demonstrate a commitment to conducting free, fair, and secure elections in Kogi, Imo, and Bayelsa states, with a focus on both the integrity of the electoral process and the confidence of the voters.
