Reveal Your Ballot Paper And Be Arrested, INEC Warns Osun Voters

INEC Postpones Collation Of Gov Election Results In Abia, Enugu

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Resident Electoral Commissioner for Osun State, Prof Abdulganiyu Raji, has warned voters in today’s governorship election in the state against revealing their ballot papers.

Raji gave the warning while speaking during the Channels Television’s Politics Today on Friday night, stating that anyone caught would be arrested.

He added: “Our regulation stipulates that you have to fold your ballot paper about three or four folds before coming out to put into the box, where that is not done, it is an offence and the presiding officer has the right to hand over the person to the security agents that are present.

“If a person is trying to expose the person he has voted for, the next thing is for him to be arrested before he will even drop the ballot paper in the box. A paper that has not been dropped in the box is automatically invalid.”
