The Independent National Electoral Commission INEC has appealed to Citizens especially those who operate on the social media to exercise restraint on what they post on Election days.

INEC Chairman Professor Mahmood Yakubu made the appeal in Abuja while briefing newsmen on the how far the Commission had gone in the preparation for the 2023 general election.

INEC Chairman Professor Mahmoud Yakubu who promised that the Commission would be open to Nigerians explained that issues regarding elections especially results were too sensitive to be posted on social media without hearing it first from the Commission.

The INEC Chairman said the Commission had procured, organised and delivered materials to the States of the federation and the Federal Capital Territory for deployment.

Professor Yakubu also explained that the Commission had concluded arrangements with the transport unions for the final movements of personnel and materials to the polling units and that the unions had equally assured the Commission of their readiness to deliver even to the riverine areas.

He also said that about nine thousand local and foreign journalists had been accredited to cover the general election while staff to be deployed for the elections had been trained.

The INEC Chairman announced that all the technologies to be used for the elections had been tested, especially the BVAS and IREV Portal.

Professor Yakubu urged eligible voters to confirm their polling units before the election days.
