The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has said it would not join issues with Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State over his alleged double voter registration, even as it disclosed that it would tomorrow disclose the names of newly registered political parties.

Chairman of the Commission, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu stated this on Monday in Kaduna on the sidelines of a workshop to review the INEC communication policy ahead of the 2019 general elections.

Yakubu said INEC stood by its earlier statement which indicted the governor, saying the commission would not trade words with the governor.

“There is nothing more the commission is going to say about this matter beyond the statement we have issued. If there is any other statement to issue we will let you know,” he said.

INEC had in its earlier statement accused the governor of embarking on a second voter registration on Tuesday May 23. 2017 at the Government House, Lokoja, the state capital, having first registered on 30th January, 2011, in Wuse Zone 4, Abuja.

Bello had last week  denied engaging in a second registration, saying it was perhaps his ghost that allegedly registered, accusing INEC of acting out a strange script.
