The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offenses Commission (ICPC) has deployed its operatives to oversee the gubernatorial elections occurring in Bayelsa, Imo, and Kogi states this Saturday.
In a Thursday statement from Abuja, the Commission’s Spokesperson, Mrs. Azuka Ogugua, verified this deployment, stating that operatives are strategically placed across the 56 local government areas and 649 wards in these three states.
Their primary responsibilities include monitoring and preventing activities like vote-buying and electoral malpractices at polling units during the election.
The ICPC’s Head of Special Duties Division, Mr. Alex Chukwura, emphasized the importance of collaboration with other agencies, including the military, police, Department of State Security, and INEC, to ensure the fairness of the elections. Chukwura urged officers to maintain discipline, uphold integrity, and work closely with each other as a team to achieve their goals while in the field.
“Voters in the three states aforesaid are charged to go out on election day and perform their civic responsibilities while avoiding any act that could lead to electoral and other related offences,” he said.
