Bayelsa: APC, APGA Agents Safeguard Voting Materials At INEC Office

Scores of agents of the opposition parties of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) yesterday besieged the office of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) following the arrival of sensitive election materials to be used during tomorrow’s State House of Assembly poll.

The deployment of heavily armed Mobile Policemen to cordon off the INEC office and protect the sensitive election materials did not discourage the party agents from mounting vigil at the commission’s office.

The APC and APGA leaders at separate media interactive sessions have raised alleged plans by the PDP to rig the election.

But the authorities of the Bayelsa State Police Command yesterday assured all political parties of adequate security that will discourage any plan to rig the elections in the state.

According to the police in a statement signed by the spokesman of the Command, ASP Asinim Butswat, the command has beefed up security with increased vehicular and foot patrols, as well as intensive surveillance in every nook and cranny of the state.

The police called on all political parties and their candidates to desist from any act capable of disrupting the election process.
