The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) says it has made progress in fixing its facilities that were destroyed in Anambra in preparation for gubernatorial election that will be held in the state later this year.

Festus Okoye, national commissioner, and chairman of, information and voter education committee, said this on Tuesday in a statement to update the public on INEC’s preparations for the Anambra governorship election.

It could be recalled that some INEC offices in the south-east, including Anambra, have witnessed a spate of attacks, leading to the destruction of some sensitive and non-sensitive materials.

On May 23, gunmen attacked the INEC office in Akwa, Anambra state.

The commission had said the attack led to the destruction of its store and that following the incident, it decided to store its election materials in Owerri, Imo state.

Okoye, in the statement, said INEC officials met on Tuesday and reviewed the commission’s preparations for the conduct of the Anambra election.

He said the burnt stores have been rebuilt and are ready to receive materials.
