A dependable source at the Independent National Electoral Commission
(INEC) has raised the caution about the likelihood of deficient supply of sensitive and non-sensitive materials for the lead of Saturday's presidential and National Assembly races.
The source said "as of midnight on Thursday, both sensitive and non-sensitive materials delivered to Adamawa State were inadequate”.
"You may wish to call the Resident Electoral Commissioner for confirmation. Please ask him to give you figures categorically. I'm telling you in all sincerity, ballot papers as brought to Adamawa are not complete. By the way, the situation is the same, virtually in all the states. You can find out,” he said.
The source further alleged that most of the names shortlisted as ad hoc staff were replaced at the last minute.
However, Kashim Gaidam, the Adamawa REC, denied the claim, saying: "As I speak with you, I'm at CBN supervising the release of materials for the conduct of the election. Be rest assured materials have been supplied enough for the exercise tomorrow.”
