The Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) in Kwara, Mr Attahiru Madami, has advised INEC officials to be neutral and discharged their duties responsibly in the ongoing Governorship and House of Assembly elections.
Madami made the call in Ilorin on Saturday while monitoring the polling centres in the state.
He urged the presiding officers and ad-hoc staff on duty not to compromise and be neutral.
At ECWA School Polling Unit 006 in Ifelodun Local Government area, he advised INEC officials to protect their integrity and be polite in dealing with the electorate.
