The statement reads, “Akwa Ibom State Resident Electoral Commissioner, Barr. Mike Igini, has announced that our offices have been fired up in the Essien Udim Local Government Area. The incident was this Sunday morning, 2 May 2021, in the early hours of the morning. Our security officer survived unhurt, but there was substantial damage of the building and belongings. Thus, there were destroyed 345 ballot boxes, 135 ballots, megaphones, water-tanks and furniture for offices. “The police are aware of the incident and have begun an inquiry as they have have been fighting assaults on its facilities and local staff.
“Of the eve of the 2019 general election, it is recalled that, as two additional offices of Mkpat Enin and Eastern Obolo LGAS were bombed, our newly-built LGA office in Ibesikpo Asutan was burnt down. “After we have just completed the inventory of electoral materials at national level in preparation for the 2023 elections, the recent assault on our premises is worrying. These attacks, if unchecked, could represent a setback in the Commission’s plans, including ongoing change of votes into polling divisions, the next exercise on Continuous Voters Registration (CVR) and polling. “The Commission however wishes to remind the Nigerians that, as we continue to prepare for all electoral operations, we will not leave any stone unturned to recover from the Akwa Ibom state incident.
