INEC speaks on corruption

Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that the chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Professor Mahmood Yakubu, has berated the deployment of money in elections, stressing that election is not a business venture but rather an application to serve the people.

This was as the electoral umpire boss listed the negative role that money plays in elections and electioneering, The Punch reported. Yakubu stated these at a ‘Stakeholders’ summit on addressing the influence of money in the 2023 general election’ held in Abuja on Monday.

He said money politics made the emergence of the right candidates for elective positions “extremely difficult.”
