INEC SEEKS NAF SUPPORT FOR VOTERS’ REGISTRATION EXERCISE

The Chairman of Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Professor Mahmood Yakubu has solicited Nigerian Air Force (NAF) support in providing security during the forthcoming nationwide Continuous Voters Registration (CVR) Exercise in 5 local governments areas of Borno State. The 5 local government areas are Kala Balge, Danbua, Chibok, Gwoza and Bama. The INEC Chairman made the  request when he paid a courtesy visit to the Chief of the Air Staff (CAS), Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar at the Headquarters NAF, Abuja. According to him, those in the Internally Displaced Persons’ (IDP) camps across the State would not be left out in the registration exercise. “No Nigerian should be left out, everybody must be registered. We are particular about security of personnel and materials especially in the 5 local government areas of Borno State”. Professor Yakubu also appealed to the NAF to deploy some of its platforms to airlift INEC staff and materials during the impending nationwide exercise. 

While responding, the CAS assured the INEC Chairman of the  willingness of the NAF to assist not only in providing adequate security during the voters registration exercise but also in airlifting INEC staff and materials. “I want to assure you that we are willing, able and ready to assist you to ensure that the exercise is successful. This is the kind of partnership we are looking forward to”, the CAS said.
