The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has said that it has no option but to engage the services of the Lagos State Parks Management Committee for the distribution of sensitive electoral materials.
Premium Times reports that Olusegun Agbaje, the Lagos state Resident Electoral Commissioner made the disclosure during an Inter-Agency Consultative Committee on Election Security (ICCES) meeting on Tuesday, February 7.
APC’s crisis deepens as hundreds of members decamp to PDP in south-south Agbaje said this while responding to questions on the controversies of engaging the services of the LSPMC led by Musiliu Akinsanya popularly known as MC Oluomo, an ally to Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress.
This decision by INEC comes months after Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos state banned the operations of the Nation Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) and the Road Transport Employers Association of Nigeria (RTEAN) in the state.
The LSPMC was set up by the governor after the ban. Continuing, Agbaje said that INEC as an entity is not concerned over the person of Mc Oluomo but about the individual drivers and vehicle owners under the management of LSPMC who are expected to meet up with the high volume of logistics needs for the elections.
