Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Professor Mamood Yakubu, on Tuesday, said that the High Courts sitting across the federation had annulled eighty-one elections comprising senatorial, House of Representatives and two governorship elections that would proceed to the Supreme Court.
Yakubu disclosed this during his maiden meeting with all the Resident Electoral Commissioners in Abuja since assumption of office in November last year. He said that the meeting was called to enable them do an assessment of the elections so far, the continuous voter registration, distribution of Permanent Voter Cards yet to be distributed, bye-elections and the welfare of staff.
