The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) has deployed its operatives to monitor tomorrow’s governorship elections in Bayelsa, Imo, and Kogi.

The Spokesperson of the Commission, Mrs AZUKA OGUGUA, said this in a statement in Abuja.

According to her, the commission’s operatives have been deployed to the fifty-six local government areas and six hundred and forty-nine Wards in the three states where the election would be held.

Ogugua said that the operatives were to among others monitor and prevent vote-buying and other electoral malpractices at the various polling units during the election.

According to her, the monitoring exercise is a response to the invitation by the INEC Chairman, Prof. MAHMOOD YAKUBU, for ICPC to participate in ensuring that the electoral processes in these three states are free and fair.
