  • Osun State Governorship Election: INEC Bars Voters From Using Mobile Phones, Cameras & Other Recording Devices Inside Polling Booths

    The chairman of Independent National Electoral Commission, Prof Mahmood Yakubu has said voters will not be allowed to go inside polling booths with their mobile phones, cameras and any other devices that can record images during Saturday's Governorship election in Osun state.

    The chairman made the call on Monday in Osogbo at the stakeholders forum organised ahead of the election.

    He said this would help to curb the issue of vote-buying and vote-selling which he described as a new strategy adopted by politicians to rig elections.

    He later clarified voters would not be barred from using their devices at the polling units but would not be allowed to hold their cameras and telephones from the moment they are issued with ballot papers until they cast their marked ballots inside the ballot boxes.
