Mr Akin Orebiyii, the Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) of INEC in Lagos, on Thursday charged collation officers, Returning Officers and Supervisory Officers for Saturday’s elections to perform their duties conscientiously.

Orebiyii spoke during a refresher course organised by the commission at the University of Lagos. He urged the officers to be diligent and not to waste time, saying that the commission would not want the forthcoming election to drag into Sunday night.

“We are going to make sure that we don’t waste time or delay the collation until Sunday night, we want to be fast as much and possible. It is not a tea party collation, it is not a time to talk all the time in the world, go straight to the business.

“We urge everyone to perform his duty conscientiously, in a fair and just manner, not taking sides; do the needful and be quick,“ he said.

The REC urged the collation officers to avoid collation of results in the dark. He told the officers to allow only accredited party agents, observers and media in each of the centres.
