DAILY FILE – The Independent National Electoral Commission has removed Prof. Musa Izam, the Collation Officer it assigned to Bokkos Local Government Area of Plateau State, the News Agency of Nigeria reports.
Izam, a physics lecturer at the University of Jos, had earlier attempted to abscond without declaring the results of Saturday’s presidential and National Assembly elections, but was apprehended by youths in the area, who forced him back to the collation centre.
“We had to remove him because he was drunk and could not perform the assignment,” Mr Osaretin Imahiyereobo, Head, Voter Education, of INEC in Plateau, told NAN in a telephone interview on Sunday in Jos.
He said that INEC had to act fast to avoid delay in the collation exercise.
