Yakubu had noted that non-sensitive materials to be used and training of personnel for the election have been completed.
The Proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) had given the Federal Government an Ultimatum to “unconditionally” release its Leader Nnamdi Kanu, which failed to do so, the South East region will be Locked down for one week by the group.
The group is of the standpoint that Kanu has been pleaded non-guilty by the court and that he has not committed any offence known to any law.
Kanu is yet to be released, and the Federal Government continue to stand by INEC insisting the election will hold as planned.
