The National Security Adviser Major General Mohammed Babagana Monguno has warned security agencies against aiding any political party to compromise the 2019 general elections in Nigeria.
He made this known during the Interagency Consultative Committee on Election Security at his office in Abuja. He said the NSA is going to descend very heavily on security agencies who as a consequence of their inability to carry out their functions allow lives to be lost unnecessarily.
General Babagana Monguno noted that President Buhari has pointed out the importance of ensuring a level playing field for all the political parties. The elections he noted have to be extremely fair and free, the process has to be very transparent and this is a heavy responsibility on their shoulders.
The INEC Chairman Prof. Mahmud Yakubu said the polls would hold in 180,000 polling units nationwide. He said the electoral body had concluded its election plans, adding that facilities were being prepared so that a credible and transparent elections could be held.
