“We want to believe that the materials will not leave without our inspection. We are hoping that INEC will avail us of the serial number of the materials before leaving CBN” he stated.

He, however, said they saw some of the INEC officials, though it appeared they were very busy, noting that it is their hope the materials will not leave this night.

“We are hoping that tomorrow morning before the materials leave CBN, INEC officials will avail us with the serial numbers to various local government councils. It is already 8 pm” he said .

Also speaking to Journalists, the Anambra state chairman of Young Progressive Party, YPP, Prince Moses Obi, said they were surprised that the INEC could ignore them in loading the voting materials in the state.

“We are here to inspect the arrival and the leaving of INEC voting materials from the CBN for the Saturday elections. I’am not happy by the process they adopted and I hope the materials will not leave this night. INEC needs to avail us of the details of the serial numbers of materials to local government councils” he said .

He also expressed hope that the materials will not leave at night at least for the insecurity in the state. Obi said that they are waiting to see what happens, noting that it would be wise for the INEC to brief them on the details of the materials serial numbers before the departure of the trucks.

INEC have not been able to avail us of the details. Nobody has been able tell us anything. The REC even told us that she will meet with the party chairmen. We learnt she came around 5pm on Thursday and started loading. We hope to see the details of materials in the morning of Friday, before leaving CBN,” he fume.
