INEC Deploys Ekiti REC to Ogun 3 Weeks to Elections

Former Resident Electoral Commissioner in Ekiti State, Prof Abdulganiyu Raji has resumed duty as the new Ogun State Resident Electoral Commissioner barely three weeks to the commencement of the general elections.

He resumed yesterday nearly four years after late Chief Timothy Ibitoye’s tenure expired as REC in the state shortly after the 2015 elections.

Raji, an indigene of Oyo State, told newsmen at a press briefing that the electoral body is prepared for the task ahead in the state.

The REC warned that any politician who induces INEC officials for results manipulation would only amounts to waste of time, saying the electoral umpire’s guidelines have made fraud “difficult.”

He said: “INEC’s operations now are very straightforward. We have our operations guidelines for electoral procedure. So, there is very little anybody can do to help anybody other than what INEC has actually stipulated as the mode of operation. If anybody is trying to induce INEC staff, the person is just wasting his time. That’s very straightforward thing.
