Election 2019: Ballot paper is not finger sensitive - INEC

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has clarified inquiries on which finger to vote with in the 2019 general elections.

In a post on its social media pages, INEC noted that the ballot paper is not finger sensitive.

“A voter can use any finger to vote but should ensure that his or her mark is clear and placed inside the box of the political party of his or her choice and does not stray into another box,” the commission tweeted.

INEC was reacting to the fake news circulated in some mediums that only the index finger can be used to thumb print the ballot paper.

Meanwhile, the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) on Monday, February 11 commenced the airlift of electoral materials for INEC across the country for the conduct of the 2019 general elections.

The airlift exercise includes day and night missions, during which both sensitive and non-sensitive electoral materials were conveyed in batches, with NAF C-130 Hercules aircraft from the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja to various airports across the country.

According to a statement by NAF spokesman, Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola, the materials were duly delivered by the C-130H aircraft crew to teams of INEC and Central Bank of Nigeria officials together with security personnel waiting at the various airports.
