CBN no longer keeps INEC electoral materials – Yakubu


The chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Mahmood Yakubu, on Saturday revealed that the Central Bank of Nigeria will no longer keep sensitive electoral materials.

Yakubu made the disclosure during a public dialogue organised by civil society organisation, Enough is Enough Nigeria in Abuja.

He said that the commission is starting with the Ekiti State governorship election.

He said, “We appreciate the circumstances and for that reason, the sensitive materials for the Ekiti election will not be routed through the Central Bank of Nigeria…in the meantime.

“But when it comes to subsequent elections… general election, we have to look for other means of handling it. I want to assure you that for Ekiti State, the materials will not be handled by the Central Bank of Nigeria.”
