INEC Demands N2.2m To Make Anambra Electoral Documents Available To APC

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Anambra State is demanding an illegal sum of N2.2m to make certified true copies of electoral documents available to All Progressive Congress (APC),

It was ordered by the Governorship Election Petition Tribunal Awka, citing “hike in the price of materials.”

The memo was issued at the instance of the Resident Electoral Commissioner, Prof Chukwuemeka Onukogu, and could set a dangerous precedent for INEC work in the country.

In rather atrocious English, the memo said:

“Taking cognizance of the hike in the price of materials in the bid to producing and furnish interested Applicants with all the electoral documents they may request/require to prosecute their respective election petitions, the above members arrived at the prevalent costs listed below viz:

1. 100 Cartons of A4 Paper @ N3, 500 each = 350,000.00

2. 25 Packets of Toner @ 20.000 each = 500,000.00

3. 100 litres of Diesel for Generator @ N170  per litre for 14 days = 238,000.00

4. Photocopying personnel @ N25,000 each for 21 Local Government Area = 525,000.00

5. Miscellaneous Expenses such as servicing Generating plant = 100,000.00

6. Servicing of Photocopier Machines = 100,000.00

7. Purchase of 10 Giant Stapler @ 5, 000 each = 50,000.00
