The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has distributed sensitive materials for the governorship supplementary election that will hold in 91 polling units in Kogi State on 5 December.
The state Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), Mr Halilu Pai, while supervising the distribution in Lokoja on Thursday, said the materials included ballot papers and result sheets, among others.
Pai said the materials will be accompanied to INEC offices in 18 local government councils affected by the supplementary election, adding that the materials will then be moved to the polling units early morning of Dec. 5.
He appealed to voters to approach the election with maturity and to eschew violence and electoral malpractice.
Pai also said that only voters with the permanent voter cards will be allowed to vote, and that accreditation of voters will be done electronically.
At the INEC office to witness the distribution of the materials were representatives of the Labour Party and the All Progressives Congress, civil society groups and security agents.
