National Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Mahmood Yakubu confirmed that one of the candidates of the APC is a contractor with the commission.

Addressing stakeholders on the reason behind the postponement of the presidential election in Abuja on Saturday, the INEC boss assured that the contractor’s political inclination would not affect the commission.

The contractor in question is Mohammed Musa, APC’s candidate for the Niger East senatorial district seat.

“Yes, I am aware. That company has been working with the commission since 2011. I assure you that we have a strict system,” he said in response to a question.

“No electoral officer will be compromised. The integrity of the process is protected.”

In an earlier statement released by the PDP, Atiku Abubakar, its presidential candidate, had said that Musa’s company, ‘Activate Technologies Limited’, was saddled with supplying the machines used in printing the permanent voter cards (PVCs).

“While Sani Musa has the right to hold any public office in spite of his line of business, it is morally unjustifiable to allow a well-known supplier of sensitive INEC materials to partake in an election in which the key materials to be used for the poll were supplied by him,” Atiku said in the statement.
