The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) said it will relocate some polling units at areas believed to be vulnerable to security challenges in Zamfara State.
The Residents Electoral Commissioner (REC) of the state, Hajiya Asmau Maikudi, said this at a press conference in Gusau on Wednesday.
The REC said the electoral officers at the local government offices of such areas were meeting with all stakeholders to see the possibilities of relocating those polling units to other places where security was guaranteed.
She said as soon as all arrangements were concluded, the commission would notify the electorate of the affected areas where to cast their votes.
She said the commission would appoint personnel that would guide the electorate to new the polling units.
