Making this appeal on Tuesday at joint management meeting with the leadership of Nigerian National Petroleum Company, the Chairman of INEC, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, said that it has become necessary to mobilise every national institution to give Nigerians a pleasant experience on the 2023 election days.

“The commission believes that the NNPC, as our national oil company, is one of the critical institutions that can facilitate the attainment of our objective.

“We are aware of the efforts of the NNPC to ease the current situation in earnest.”

These options include the use of the NNPC land and floating mega stations nationwide to service INEC’s election duty vehicles and boats.

“We will bear the cost of the products. By doing so, there will be guaranteed supply for elections,” he said.

Prof. Yakubu equally solicited for a special arrangement with other marketers in locations where the NNPC may not have dedicated stations, and consider other options to support a seamless operations on Election Day.
