INEC Chairman, Prof. Mamood Yakubu disclosed this while briefing newsmen in Abuja on Wednesday.
Yakubu said discussions were ongoing with the unions to perfect the logistics plan.
INEC had signed an MoU with National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), Road Transport Employees Association of Nigeria (RTEAN), and National Association of Road Transport Owners (NATO), for efficient logistics in the general election.
“I made contact with the National Chairman of the NURTW on my way to this place.
