The secretary of the commission, Barrister Wada Bashir Isiyaku said,  to ensure a smooth and hitch free local government polls, the commission will commence distribution of   non sensitive materials to the 44 local government areas, two weeks, prior to the date schedule for the polls.

He said,  the commission has introduced a process that will ensure adhoc staff, who are  recruited to conduct the exercise are persons with proven integrity and neutrality

According to him, “in compliance with best practices, sensitive electoral material will be deployed, to designated voting centres, in the early hours on the day of elections.

He explained that  sensitive materials will be accompanied to their destination by KANSIEC officials, security agents,  and representatives of political parties, to avoid suspicion  on the part of either of the political players.

While disclosing  that, newly registered political parties will be accommodated on the ballot papers, to avoid omission

Bashir  noted that, persons living with disabilities will partake in the exercise, adding that, arrangements have been concluded to ease the plight of physically challenged persons.

He refute the claims that there exist a rift in the commission, noting that, the rumored purported resignation by the chairman of the Commission is an handiwork of fifth columnist.

He warned those desirous of distracting the commission to refrain from unholy acts that are weaved with the intent to disrupt the smooth conduct of the 2018 local government election in the state.

Bashir claimed that the commission is operating without undue interference from the state government or under the yoke of interference from political stalwarts  from within or outside the state.
