The Independent National Election Commission (INEC) has posted a new Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) to Kogi State to oversee next Saturday’s state assembly election.

Addressing reporters in Lokoja, the new REC, Prof. Jacob Jatau dispelled the allegation, saying he was in the state to conduct free, fair and credible election.

Jatau served as REC in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), where he oversaw the conduct of the March 28 presidential election.

The REC assured all parties that INEC will not take sides, saying preparation for Saturday’s state assembly election in the state had reached advanced state.

“We are here to conduct election and this I assure you all will be discharged to the best of my knowledge. We are not here to favour anybody. That I know”, he said.

He warned that results from areas where there are reports of ballot box snatching will be cancelled

The former REC, Hussain Pai was posted to Kano State, following the tragic death of the Kano, Mukaila Abdullahi.
