By Emmanuel Oloniruha

Abuja  –   The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) have inaugurated a committee to work out modalities for collaboration on key aspects of election logistics management.

Mr Aliyu Bello, the commission’s Deputy Director, Voter Education and Publicity said this in a statement on Thursday in Abuja.

He said the decision to set up the committee was taken when INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu visited the CBN headquarters, Abuja on Wednesday.

Bello said nine INEC National Commissioners and the Secretary to the Commission were part of the chairman’s team during the visit.

He said the committee comprised two CBN Directors and the Secretary to the commission.

According to him, the committee is to discuss the requirements for the printing, storage and transportation of sensitive election materials and their disposal thereafter.

Bello quoted the INEC chairman as commending CBN for the timely production of the commission’s sensitive election materials, especially those used for the recent Anambra governorship election and the by-election in Borno.

Yakubu also expressed appreciation to the Bank for providing sufficient security for all sensitive election materials.

He canvassed for the Bank’s continued support in the effective management of electoral logistics involving transportation and storage of sensitive election materials

Yakubu, however, drew  CBN’s attention to the huge volumes of unused and obsolete sensitive election materials lying in different parts of the country.
