Our Offices, Facilities Were Vandalized During ENDSARS Protests – INEC



Festus Okoye

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has said it suffered extensive damages in its facilities in the violence that erupted following the #ENDSARS protest across the country.

Festus Okoye, INEC National Commis­sioner and Chairman Infor­mation and Voter Education Committee, disclosed this on Thursday, stating that the commission’s offices and facilities were vandalized in areas where pending bye-elections were scheduled to hold.

Okoye said the commission will however, decide on a date for the conduct of the bye-elections after consulting with critical stakeholders including political parties and civil society organisations.

“Consequently, the Commission will consult with political parties and civil society organisations on Tuesday 10th November 2020 and then with the media and Inter-Agency Consultative Committee on Election Security (ICCES) on Wednesday 11th November 2020,” he said.

“The Commission will thereafter meet again with the Resident Electoral Commissioners on Thursday, 12th November 2020 to decide on a date for the conduct of the bye-elections.”

The INEC Commissioner further appealed to all stakeholders to continue to cooperate with the commission in its efforts to conduct credible elections in a safe and conducive environment.
