The independent national electoral commission, INEC has expressed concern about some recent court orders and judgments regarding the nomination, and substitution of party candidates, and their effects on the management of sensitive materials for the elections.


Chairman of the commission, Professor Mahmood Yakubu said this today during a session with Inter-Party Advisory Council (IPAC) in preparation for the forthcoming off-circle governorship elections in Kogi, Bayelsa, and Imo State.


According to him, thecommission spends huge amount of money in fixing election materials in response to court judgement.



Earlier, the Chairman of IPAC, Yabagi Sani, argued that the ripples from past elections leave serious questions on the integrity and neutrality of INEC, appealing to the commission to reassure Nigerians of their sincerity to electoral transparency in line with the constitution.

The INEC chief however stated that the commission is committed to neutrality and integrity in delivering its constitutional duties in line with the code of its conduct.
