Contrary to repeated the allegation being raised by Governor Ayodele Fayose that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) was plotting to rig the July 14 governorship election in the state, the commission has said nothing would make it compromise the integrity of the poll in favour of any candidate.

The INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner in Ekiti State, Prof. Abdul-Ganiyu Raji, has reaffirmed to Ekiti voters that the electoral umpire “is not equally prepared to compromise core values of autonomy, transparency, integrity and excellence among others”.

Speaking at a town hall meeting organised by the Democracy Vanguard, a civil society organisation working on good governance and democracy, the INEC boss who was represented by Mr. Taiwo Gbadegesin, the INEC Public Relations Officer, said the agency is “committed to conduct a free, fair and credible election for sustainable democracy in Ekiti State”.
