INEC Commends EFCC on Role in Curbing Electoral Fraud

Date:

Mallam Aminu Kasimu Idris, the Resident Electoral Commissioner, REC, of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, in charge of Kaduna State, commended the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on its role in curbing electoral fraud. He gave the commendation in Kaduna during a courtesy visit to the Kaduna Zonal Command of the Commission.

According to him, ”EFCC has no doubt helped tremendously in curbing election fraud in the last elections; the Commission is a major stakeholder to INEC, because of the vital role it played during the last electioneering exercise which was successful.”

Mallam Idris said the EFCC brought orderliness, peace and calm, which in turn brought credibility to the overall success of the elections. He also said the visit was to seek for more, and a better collaboration with the EFCC towards the upcoming bye-elections in six Local Government Areas in Kaduna State.

Apart from that, the collaboration will strengthen institutional relationships between the two Commissions.

Responding, Kaduna’s Acting Zonal Commander, Assistant Commander of the EFCC, ACE I Aisha Abubakar, appreciated the Resident Commissioner’s visit, and assured him of the EFCC’s readiness to continuously partner with INEC not only in election matters but in every matter, and whenever the need arises.

Abubakar assured INEC of the Commission’s full support, cooperation and collaboration whenever they are needed.
