Vote Buying: INEC Chairman Mahmoud Yakubu Calls For Creation Of Electoral Offences Tribunal


Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission INEC, Mahmoud Yakubu has called for the creation of electoral offences tribunal and commission as recommended by various panels such as the Uwais panel on electoral reform, to tackle the menace of vote buying in the country.

Chairman of the electoral umpire, was speaking on Monday at a one day public hearing on "vote buying and improving electoral processes in Nigeria" organised by the National Assembly joint committee on INEC.

The INEC boss insisted that the commission is not in any way involved in vote buying or selling, adding that the public hearing should rather be a confessional forum where some of the politicians present at the hearing should confess their sins.
