The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC)  says it is ready for Saturday’s governorship election in Ekiti.

The Resident Electoral Commissioner in the state, Prof. Abdulganih Olayinka, told newsmen on Friday in Ado-Ekiti that all materials were  already at  the 16  local governments while  the  commission’s staff  and security agents were set to commence the exercise.

According to him, the materials were monitored directly in his office through the commission’s official vehicle tracker connected to a giant television screen.

He enjoined all eligible voters to come out  and  cast their votes as adequate security had  been put in place to ensure a hitch-free electoral process.

The REC also confirmed that Ekiti has 913,334 voters out of which 646, 000 had  collected their Permanent Voters Cards(PVCs), with about  250,000 still in the commission’s vaults.

He also said 35 political parties were participating in the election as against the initial 40 that had initially signalled intent to field candidates.
