We’ll monitor campaigns — INEC

The Chairman of INEC, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, said yesterday that the electoral empire will closely monitor campaigns of political parties to ensure compliance with extant laws and regulations.

Prof. Yakubu, who made this known during his regular meetings with Resident Electoral Commissioners (RECs) in Abuja, said the commission was pleased that the focus in the last few days since the commencement of the campaigns had been on policies rather than personalities.

“We sincerely hope it remains this way,” he said, adding that the commission had been working on the clean-up of the voters’ register which was displayed  in all polling units nationwide for claims and objections,” he said.
