As Nigerians prepare for the 2019 general elections, the Independent National Electoral Commission has denied reports that it plans to create an additional 30,000 polling units. 

This was in response to allegations by the major opposition political party, the People’s Democratic Party that the electoral body was planning polling units in compromised areas, across the country. 

INEC Chairman Prof Mahmoud Yakubu who was fielding questions from political correspondents in Abuja, said there was no iota of truth to the claim. 

Prof Yakubu who received the Lesotho Electoral Commission, shared that INEC was engaging electoral bodies across Africa, who have been visiting to understudy their electoral strategies and plans. 

The CEO of the Lesotho Electoral Commission Austeria Ntsike said she was delighted to visit and meet her Nigerian counterparts, who have been doing a remarkable job in conducting credible and fair elections. 

According to her what was learnt from Nigeria, will enable them carry out their job as electoral umpire for their country, ahead of the next election cycle. 

She was particular about the INEC Nigeria strategic election project plan 2016-2021, which the commission has shown willingness to share the documents with Lesotho.
