You Can Record Election Proceedings With Your Cameras..INEC

To show that the commission has nothing to hide and wants to conduct transparent polls, the Lagos Resident Electoral Commissioner of INEC, Mr Akin Orebiyi, yesterday, said that the electorate could use camera and other devices which have camera to capture the voting process during the elections tomorrow.
“The world is now a global village so pictures are allowed to be taken at the polling booths. An electorate can come with his camera phone and take pictures of the voting process. The whole world is monitoring us and we will not be left behind as people hiding information,’’ he said.
Orebiyi also urged the electorate not to be afraid of the use of the smart card readers because the commission has put everything in place towards a successful conduct of the general election.
Speaking at a briefing on the state of preparedness of the Police and other security agencies towards a successful and violent free 2015 general elections at Ikeja, Orebiyi said that the commission has made adequate arrangements for seamless balloting in the 205 polling units across the riverine areas of Lagos.
According to him, the commission has several life jackets, speed boats, large commercial boats and canoes for the polls.
“I was also in Ondo some years ago to conduct election and there were 271 polling units in the riverine areas and we had a very successful election. So I do not see Lagos with 205 polling units across the riverine areas and islands to be a problem.
“INEC is committed to ensuring a free and fair election and we do not intend to disenfranchise anybody or stop people from voting. In ensuring a credible election, we introduced two things which are the Permanent Voters Card (PVCs) and the smart card readers, which will help the commission to authenticate genuine and fake PVCs.’’
