With the general election just days away, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has announced that voting will not take place in 240 polling units due to safety concerns.

At a meeting with political party leaders on Monday, INEC Chairman Prof. Mahmood Yakubu expressed alarm over the increasing number of attacks on supporters of various political parties.

He emphasized that the decision to not hold the election in these polling units was not a choice made by voters, but rather a measure taken to ensure their safety and to maintain the integrity of the election.
