CLEEN Foundation wants timely deployment of electoral materials


•Trade Fair traders in Lagos declare support for Buhari, Sanwo-Olu

CLEEN Foundation has urged the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to ensure timely, adequate and effective deployment of electoral personnel and materials.

Its Executive Director, Benson Olugbuo, in a statement yesterday in Abuja, also urged the commission to ensure impartiality and incorruptibility of their regular and ad hoc staff.

Olugbuo charged the commission to ensure the functionality and reliability of electoral equipment, especially the Smart Card Reader.

He also called for a synergy and coordination with other electoral stakeholders, including political parties, security agencies, civil society organisations, the media and the general public throughout the electoral processes.


Meanwhile, traders and artisans at the International Trade Fair in Lagos, yesterday declared support for the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential and governorship candidates, President Muhammadu Buhari and Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

The traders who staged a walk round the market to educate the voters, said their support for the APC was due to the improvement the market had witnessed under the current government.

According to them, they were particularly impressed by the leadership style of the Executive Director of the International Trade Fair, Mrs. Lucy Ajayi, who is an appointee of President Buhari.

Among those who took part at the rally were the former executive members of the market: Paschal Udeh, Alex Odunukwe, Oscar Odogwu, and Uba Amechi.

Addressing the crowd, Mrs. Ajayi thanked them for their pledged support for the APC, assuring that government would commence construction of bad roads in the market soon.
