Katsina State Independent Electoral Commission (KTSIEC) says plans have reached advanced stage as it has engaged over 10,000 ad-hoc staff for the conduct of the April 11 local government elections in the state.
The KTSIEC Chairman, Alhaji Ibrahim Bako, made this known while distributing sensitive and non-sensitive materials ahead of the polls on Sunday in Katsina.
According to Bako, all security arrangements have been put in place to make the exercise free, fair and credible, adding that early distribution would enable the materials to reach the areas in time to enable conduct of the elections at the appropriate time.
Some of the materials distributed include ballot papers and result sheets, which were distributed in the presence of party agents after inspection and cross checking, to the 34 local government areas.
Other materials distributed include about 334 cartons of forms EC 8A, B, C and E, containing booklets for both the Chairmanship and Councillorship Electoral ballot papers.
Sequel to the elections, the state government declared April 11 a work-free day for the electorates to come out en masse and participate in the local council’s elections.
Similarly, the Katsina State Police command also announced restriction of movement of persons and vehicles from 6 a.m to 6 pm on April 11.
