2019 Elections: We have no plans for any IDP camp in Zamfara – INEC

With few days elections, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has announced that   it will not consider any Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) camp in Zamfara, saying they do not have records.

This was disclosed by the state’s Resident Electoral Commissioner, Dr Asmau Maikudi, at a press briefing in Gusau on Wednesday.

“We have no plans for any IDP camp in Zamfara State during the coming general elections because we have no record on the existence of any IDP camp.

“We have, however, in collaboration with security agencies made arrangements to provide adequate security to all areas with security challenges.

“It is a known fact that out of the 14 local government areas of the state, only Gummi and Bakura Local Government areas have less security challenges and we have the assurance from the security,” she said.

She also explained that those who recently migrated to other areas due to security reasons may be chanced to vote in the presidential election because the smart card reader recognizes state and polling units.

She said, “where there were serious security challenges, the electorate would be moved to a more secured environment close to them so that they could exercise their voting rights.”
