INEC SWORN-IN 9 NEW RESIDENT ELECTORAL COMMISSIONERS OUT OF THE 9 RECS SCREENED                                                                                   12-12-23

By Sadiq Aminu                                    The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC has sworn in nine new Resident Electoral Commissioners out of the ten RECS screened. (RECs)

On the occasion in Abuja, INEC Chairman Professor Mahmood Yakubu said the remaining REC designate would be sworn in next month on the expiry of the tenure of the REC representing Akwa Ibom State currently deployed to Delta State.
Professor Yakubu urged them to maintain the Commission’s tradition of regular consultations with critical stakeholders which included the political parties, civil society organisations, the media, traditional institutions, religious bodies and the security agencies.

He also told them to be firm in ensuring fairness and transparency to and to work closely with the field officers in their various States.

“He also warned them to understand and operate within the limits of their delegated powers.

He also explained that among the nine new RECs, four have been career officers of the Commission rising to the rank of Director and this was the first time that several INEC career officers are appointed as RECs.

On bye elections, INEC Chairman said the Commission would soon release the Timetable and Schedule of Activities for the re-run elections as vacancies had been declared by Presiding Officers for Surulere 1 Federal Constituency of Lagos State, Jalingo/Yorro/Zing Federal Constituency of Taraba State, Chibok State Constituency of Borno State, Chikun State Constituency of Kaduna State and Guma State Constituency of Benue State.

Professor Yakubu said that the Commission was liaising with the National and State Assemblies for the declaration of vacancies in Ebonyi South and Yobe East Senatorial Districts, Akoko North East/Akoko North West Federal Constituency of Ondo State, Yauri/Shanga/Ngaski Federal Constituency of Kebbi State, Isa/Sabon Birni Federal Constituency of Sokoto State and Khana II State Constituency of Rivers State so that elections would be conducted in those areas.

The new RECS were deployed to their States of assignment immediately .
