The Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, is currently monitoring the mock accreditation in Kogi State ahead of the November 11 governorship election in Bayelsa and Imo states.

The mock accreditation is expected to take place in the three states on Saturday.

INEC had scheduled the mock accreditation for October 14 in polling units in the three states to test-run the technologies to be deployed on Election Day and as well as increase voter confidence in the commission’s activities.

Yakubu had a stopover at one of the commission’s offices in Koton Karfe Local Government Area.

The Electoral Officer, Hassan Musa, assured the INEC Chairman that the local government was ready to conduct the governorship election in the state.

Yakubu urged the E.O. to work with the security agencies, adding that all polling units must be opened by 8:30 a.m.

The Chairman proceeded to one of the Registration Area Centres in the Lokoja, Kogi state capital to assess the activities at the polling units.

Four registered voters were accredited at the RAC without the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System failing.
