Following the shift in the date for the conduct of the general elections, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Plateau has retrieved all sensitive materials earlier distributed to the 17 Local Government Areas of the state.
Head of Voter Education and Publicity of the commission in the state Mr Osaretin Imahireogbo made the statement on Sunday in Jos.
INEC had, last Thursday, distributed all sensitive materials to the various LGAs in the state.
Mr Imahireogbo said that the retrieval, which began on Saturday night, was concluded on Sunday morning, adding that all the materials had been deposited with the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) in Jos, the State capital.

“All the materials are intact and now kept in the custody of the CBN where it was collected and distributed to the LGAs,” he said.
