Uyo, Feb. 16, 2019 (NNN) The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Akwa Ibom says all sensitive materials sent to the state are intact in spite of the postponement of elections.
“In Akwa Ibom, our materials are intact and had not been compromised.
“We were together with party agents late last night and they were happy that we had not moved out our sensitive materials,’’ Igini said.

“Everything is intact. We regret what happened and call for your understanding. It is for the good of the country.
“From the disappointment of today, we are going to do Nigerians proud particularly in Akwa Ibom.
