INEC Bans Video Recording During Osun Election

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has stated that voters will not be allowed to go inside polling booths with their mobile phones, cameras and any other devices that can record images during Saturday’s Governorship election in Osun State.

Prof Mahmood Yakubu, INEC chairman, disclosed this on Monday in Osogbo at the stakeholders’ forum organised ahead of the election.

He said this would help to curb the issue of vote-buying and vote-selling which he described as a new strategy adopted by politicians to rig elections.

According to him, voters would not be barred from using their devices at the polling units but would not be allowed to hold their cameras and telephones from the moment they are issued with ballot papers until they cast their marked ballots inside the ballot boxes.
