Noting that all materials have been distributed to states, he said the sensitive materials are currently being delivered to local government areas. He said that nonsensitive materials were deployed two months ago.

The INEC Chairman reiterated that 240 polling units do not have voters, and also said that staff to be deployed for the elections have been trained.

Also at the briefing, Yakubu disclosed that 87 million Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) have so far been collected ahead of the upcoming general elections.

He noted that the current voter register contains over 94 million voters, but stated that the Commission will continue to clean it up with technology going forward.
