The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has reiterated its commitment to conducting credible elections in Edo State, as the state prepares for its governorship election.
The Resident Electoral Commissioner in Edo State, Sam Olumekun, made the statement on Monday during a visit to the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) camp in Uhogua.
In preparation for the coming poll in the state, Olumekun promised the residents that INEC would ensure a free and fair election.
He hinted that he was on a tour of the IDPs camp to identify eligible voters, in order to ensure everyone was given equal opportunity to exercise their franchise.
However, the Coordinator of the camp, Solomon Folorunsho, expressed concern over the safety of the IDPs, should INEC site a polling unit on the camp.
