“We were able to conclude this despite the fact that we were brought in late and ensure that the presidential and National Assembly elections, as well as state governorship elections, were conducted.
“Even the supplementary elections, our aircraft were able to convey some of the materials yesterday to Jalingo, Yola, and Bauchi. Similarly, we are rounding off the distribution of supplementary election materials to other areas INEC would want us to drop,” he stated.
The NAF Chief also promised a better synergy with the electoral body in distributing more electoral materials for the supplementary elections.
