Buhari Meets INEC Chairman, Commissioners

President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday met with the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Professor Mahmood Yakubu.

The INEC boss was joined by five commissioners of the electoral body at the meeting, which was held at the First Lady’s conference room at the State House in Abuja.

The meeting might not be unconnected with the recent attacks on the Commission’s facilities across the country.

On May 27, Profession Yakubu said the Commission offices and facilities have been attacked 41 times across the country.

According to the INEC Chief, 11 of the commission’s offices have either set ablaze or vandalized in the last four weeks.

On Monday, the electoral body vowed to conduct the upcoming Anambra governorship election, which was scheduled to hold on November 6, despite the increase in the levels of insecurity in the country.
