INEC To Ban Phones During Osun Election by melvinjames: 9:27am On Aug 10
The Resident Electoral Commissioner in Osun State, Mr Olusegun Agbaje, has said the Independent National Electoral Commission, in collaboration with security agents, will do everything to prevent vote-buying during the September 22 governorship election in the state.

The REC, who said this in Osogbo on Thursday, at a meeting held with the governorship candidates, their running mates and party officials as part of the preparations of the commission ahead of the poll, stressed that voters would not be allowed to use telephones to take photographs of their ballots.

According to him, some voters have been using cameras to take photographs of their ballots and show the same photos to politicians to be paid for voting for them.

Agbaje, who was the REC that conducted the August 2014 governorship election in the state before he was transferred to Ondo State and brought back again, said the INEC was determined to conduct a transparent and violence-free election in Osun State and needed the cooperation of all stakeholders to achieve this.

This is a ploy by APC to rig the election by stopping any photographic evidence.

There's only one reason for this: just to hide evidence of ballot alterations. No other plausible explanation for this weird directive.

Perfecting the rigging plan. This is because most of the evidence in Ekiti election is from phone pictures of actual results.

rigging will be resisted on every side. it is everyone's right to snap his results, monitor the couting process to the collation centers. besides I'm bringing my phone out to cover the election process. we are in the digital age and not analogue age. so the inec should just keep it to themselves.

Phone was allowed in Ekiti, but it did stop you from claiming the result was rigged.

Majority of these people commenting are not from South west talkless of coming from Osun state. But they feel they have the right to speak for awon omo Osun. Any single action, they claim it is a plan to rig the election.
Even Fayose did not complain about Ekiti election because he knew he wasn't going to win. E go shock una.

We don't have to come from Osun to condemn any sinister move by a government institution charged with conducting an unbiased election.

Good initiative as long as its on snapping of individual ballot paper to shows vote buyers. Anything aside that, phone would definitely be used.

Your assertion is dumb... as long as you are registered in osun, you have 100% right to vote in osun and not if an indigene or not.

As in they want to tackle vote buying by eliminating materials and instruments that can be used to detect such if it actually happen. At the end of the election, there won't be any video or photo implicating any body or party and so any public outcry about vote buying would be considered as false. Wow. Nigerians are genius.

Flat.head, learn to mind your business. Look at the way your people were crying because PDP lost Ekiti state. You talk like you know Yoruba than themselves. I remember telling one flat.head that APC would win Ekiti, but he refused to listen, only for him to start opening threads about the election that was not his business. I am certain APC will win. I know you Ibos will start crying very soon. Always poking their nose into Yoruba affairs.
Spit on your flat.head
