Ado Ekiti, Feb. 20, 2019 The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Ekiti on Wednesday began movement of sensitive materials for Saturday’s rescheduled Presidential and National Assembly elections to the 16 local government areas.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that sorting and distribution of the materials took place at the temporary site of the state branch of the Central Bank on the State Secretariat Road, Ado Ekiti.
Among the items distributed were card readers, ballot papers, result sheets, and different forms and registers.
Representatives of leading political parties such as the PDP and APC were on hand to monitor the distribution exercise.
Dr Muslim Omoleke, the INEC Administrative Secretary in the state, who doubles as the Acting Resident Electoral Commissioner, said it was part of proactive measures devised by the commission to ensure a hitch-free exercise.
He said the exercise, which began about 2.00 p.m on Wednesday, would be concluded before the close of work on Thursday.
Omoleke assured that the commission was not leaving any stone unturned toward achieving a timely and hitch-free exercise.
NNN reports that the adjoining roads leading to the apex bank were barricaded by stern looking mobile policemen keeping vigil.
Speaking on the development, the PDP representative at the Central Bank, Mr Oluwalafe Sunday, expressed satisfaction that all the sensitive materials were intact and distributed accordingly.
His APC counterpart, Mr Garuba Arogundade, also expressed satisfaction with the process.
He said his only area of concern was that INEC should have started the distribution days earlier so as not to be under pressure.
Also commenting, the MEGA Party representative, Mr Femi Oladipo, commended INEC for making efforts to live up to its promise of making sure all election materials got to polling booths on record time on the day of the election.

Rescheduled deaf football championships, hope restored – NDFA
Banjo Kamiludeen, the Technical Director, Nigeria Deaf Football Association (NDFA), says the rescheduled Fourth World Deaf Football Championships has restored the association’s hope of activity in the year.
Kamiludeen told the News Agency of Nigeria on Sunday in Lagos that the Korea Deaf Sports Federation, host of the mundia, had rescheduled the event, billed for Changwon Gyeongsangnam-do from September to November.
He said that the coronavirus pandemic was instrumental to the adjustment of the championships’ new dates to between Nov. 2 and Nov. 17 for the fourth edition of the tournament.
“The coronavirus pandemic has affected the events and activities, forcing most countries to shut down and which also affected sports, particularly the 2020 World Deaf Football Championships.
“But few days ago, we got information from the host country, South Korea, that the championships have been rescheduled and will now hold in November, instead of the initial September.
“With the COVID-19 lockdown gradually being eased in Nigeria, we are certain that this year’s Deaf World Cup Championships will hold,” Kamiludeen said.
According to him, the International Committee of Sports for the Deaf (ICSD), organisers of the championships, has designed the fiesta for players who are deaf or hard of hearing.
The NDFA technical director added that he would take advantage of the relaxed lockdown to prepare programmes for the footballers, who had been off training since the past four weeks.
“It’s very important to prepare the deaf footballers for international championships, because of their hard-hearing challenge. And that is why we have to make our training regular.
“We will commence training for the world championships when the COVID-19 lockdown is totally relaxed in order to get the footballers, who have relaxed for too long, back,” he added.
The technical director said that the national team, known as Deaf Eagles, would still have to play continental qualifications towards the world championships, as only four were expected to represent Africa in the mundia.
Kamiludeen, who said that Nigeria was rated number one in West Africa and number two in Africa, added that the team had made five appearances in West Africa Deaf Football Union (WADFU) and recorded outstanding performance in the continent.

NPFL rescheduled match: Rangers pip Kastina Utd. 1-0 in Enugu
Rangers International FC of Enugu on Wednesday piped visiting Kastina United FC 1-0 in the ongoing Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) rescheduled match day 18 in Enugu.
The only goal of the match was scored by Chinonso Eziekwe in the 46th minute of the match played at Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium, Ogui, Enugu.
Rangers would have paid for their several misses but have their defensive trojan Tony Shimaga to thank for the last gasp relief in the 82nd minute.
With the victory Rangers climbed up to 8thpositions from 13thposition with 31 points after 22 matches in the NPFL.
Speaking after the match, Rangers Assistant Coach Mbwas Mangut expressed dismay over the club several missed chances.
Mangut said that Rangers needed to avoid such against a big team as Rivers United in their next match to avoid punishment.
He noted that the win was a good one for the club considering where it would take them to in the log.
The coach said “things change fast in football as each game comes with its ways’’ and expressed confidence that the players could convert all their chances in their next match.
In his submission, Kastina United coach Henry Makinwa gave it to Rangers for their brave play after the interval.
Makinwa said that his team lost the match to loss of concentration and that he was not happy the way his team conceded the goal.
”We would have come out of the match with something positive if not that goal.
”Although we missed chances but Rangers could have regretted most because they missed chances more than we,” Makinwa said.
The coach said that he would have been the happiest person if that match had ended in a draw.
Speaking on officiating, the coach rated the officiating 100 per cent and said that the officials did excellently well.

Besides, he said he had put in the players a winning mentality, adding that on the Insurance game, the club would do its best.
“The club will know how to approach the match when they take to the field in Benin and that they hope to come back with a positive result in as much as we get a level playing field as regards officiating,” he said.

Rescheduled State Assembly election in Kogi witnesses low voter turnout
Mopamuro (Kogi), March 10, 2019 The rescheduled House of Assembly election in Mopamuro Local Government Area of Kogi has witnessed a very low turnout of voters.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Saturday postponed the state House of Assembly election across Mopamuro Local Government Area of Kogi.
The Electoral Officer, Mopamuro LGA, Mr Opanachi Ojodale, said that the election was postponed to Sunday, March 10, due to the wrong ballot papers that were taken to the area.
A NNN Correspondent who monitored the exercise reported that there was a very low turnout of voters across the polling units visited.
NNN reports that the INEC officials arrived various polling units ahead of the scheduled time (8:00 a.m.) across the 10 wards in the local government area.
The card readers at the various polling units visited also functioned effectively.
NNN reports that the low turnout recorded in the re-scheduled election might not be unconnected with the boycott of PDP members from the election.
The PDP said in a letter to INEC on their boycott: “…Since we believe that our victory at the polls is not worth the blood of any citizen of our local government area, after due consideration with our party hierarchy, we have decided to boycott the election’’.
Also, a PDP chieftain in the state and former Deputy Governor, Yomi Awoniyi, confirmed the withdrawal of the PDP from the re-scheduled elections.
Mr Makinde Oyebode, an APC chieftain, told NNN that the election had been peaceful, free and fair, saying the turnout was `generally okay’.
Responding to the boycott by the PDP, Makinde said that there were 16 political parties participating in the election, saying the boycott by the PDP would not affect the outcome of the election.
He, however, urged the APC supporters to remain calm and be peaceful, while awaiting the announcement of the election results.
Another APC member, Mr Gbenga Olanrewaju, commended INEC and the security agencies for the peaceful conduct of the election.
A voter, Omolayo Olode, told NNN that the election was peaceful but there was a low turnout of voters.
The counting of votes will commence by 2:00 p.m., according to INEC regulations.
Kogi: PDP boycotts rescheduled assembly election in Mopamuro LGA over alleged insecurity
Mr Olasunmore Fatobi, the PDP chairman in the LGA disclosed this in a statement, where he alleged threats to lives and properties of his party members in the area.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), had on Saturday rescheduled the elections due to wrong ballot papers taken to the area.
The Electoral Officer in charge of the LGA, Mr Opanachi Ojolade, announced that INEC would conduct the elections on Sunday.
He explained that ballot papers belonging to Ankpa LGA were mistakenly taken to Mopamoru LGA.
But PDP through Fatobi alleged unprecedented violence in some elections held on Saturday across the state.
He said that the party had officially written to INEC to inform it of the party’s decision not to participate in the exercise.
The letter to INEC obtained by NNN reads: “We hereby write to inform you of the decision of our party to boycott the rescheduled House of Assembly election in Mopamuro.
“This is as a result of the unprecedented level of ballot snatching, thuggery and molestation that characterised the elections held on Saturday.
“The free use of guns and other dangerous weapons is a complete departure from the influx of thugs arranged by the All Progressives Congress (APC) is a recipe for mayhem.
“Since we believe that our victory at the polls is not worth the blood of any citizen of our local government area, after due consideration with our party hierarchy, we have decided to boycott the elections.”
Fatobi further alleged that “My life and that of my family and PDP leaders in Mopamuro LGA are being threatened by thugs of the ruling party with guns and men in fake military uniforms.
“This development has made me to move my family out of the state in order to ensure their safety.”
He, however, said that the matter had been reported to the Police and the Department of State Security Service.
Also, a PDP chieftain in the state and former Deputy Governor, Yomi Awoniyi, also confirmed the withdrawal of the PDP from the rescheduled elections.

No rescheduled election in AMAC’s 12 wards — Electoral Officer
Mrs Fadimatu Bakari, the Abuja Municipal Area Council (AMAC) Electoral Officer, has confirmed that there was no rescheduled election in any of the 12 wards under the council.
Bakari, who confirmed this to the News Agency of Nigeria (NNN) in Abuja on Sunday, said besides challenges attributed to card reader failure on Saturday, there were no major challenges to warrant election rescheduling.
She said the exercise went relatively well in all the wards.
Bakari said collation of Saturday’s Presidential and National Assembly elections from the various wards was already in progress at the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) office in Karu.
She expressed optimism that the exercise would be concluded and results forwarded to INEC national headquarters as soon as possible.
“Election held in all the 12 wards under AMAC on Saturday.
“The exercise went well except for challenges experienced with the use of card reader but that was resolved.
“Collation has commenced and so far; five wards have submitted their results. These are Garki, Karshi, Gui, Orozo and Jiwa.
“We are waiting for Wuse and others but I am optimistic that we will end the collation for onward submission to the headquarters soon,” she said.
As at the time of filing this report, returning officers from some of the wards were seen at the Karu INEC office, venue for the collation of results.
