INEC Will No Longer Keep Sensitive Election Materials With CBN Over Emefiele’s Involvement In Partisan Politics – Prof Yakubu

Following the involvement of the Central bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele, in partisan politics, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has confirmed that it will no longer keep sensitive electoral materials withe the nation’s apex bank.

Chairman of INEC, Mahmood Yakubu, said on Saturday in Abuja while responding to questions at a dialogue on Elections that towards this, beginning from the Ekiti State Governorship election, the electoral body will not keep its sensitive materials with the CBN.

According to him, this decision is to guarantee that electoral materials for the lined-up elections are not compromised.

Several individuals and groups had raised serious concerns about the sanctity of elections materials kept with the CBN as Emefiele had become a card-carrying member of the ruling party, the All Progressive Congress (APC)

The concerns were aggravated as the CBN Governor and groups allied to him bought the presidential primary election forms of N100 million under the banner of the ruling party, the APC.

Emefiele also went to the Federal High Court Abuja and the Delta State High Court Kwale to enforce his rights to contest the 2023 presidency while serving as the CBN Governor.
