INEC demands N2.2 million to make Anambra electoral documents available To APC

The Independent National Electoral Commission in Anambra State is demanding an illegal sum of N2.2m to make certified true copies of electoral documents available to All Progressive Congress (APC), as ordered by the Governorship Election Petition Tribunal Awka, citing “hike in the price of materials.”

INEC Chairman, Prof. Attahiru Jega

The memo was issued at the instance of the Resident Electoral Commissioner, Prof Chukwuemeka Onukogu, and could set a dangerous precedent for INEC work in the country.

In rather atrocious English, the memo said:

“Taking cognizance of the hike in the price of materials in the bid to producing and furnish interested Applicants with all the electoral documents they may request/require to prosecute their respective election petitions, the above members arrived at the prevalent costs listed below viz:
