The Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) are currently working out the protocols and guidelines for the upcoming elections in Nigeria, including the Edo and Ondo States governorship elections.
The Chairman PTF on COVID-19, Mr. Boss Mustapha, disclosed this during the taskforce daily briefing in Abuja on Monday.
He said: “The national response will continue to guide the adoption of the sector’s specific guidelines and protocols.
“The PTF is currently concluding discussions with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on the appropriate guidelines to be adopted for the upcoming elections in some parts of the country.
