2019 Election: INEC Addresses Reports That It Budgeted N6billion For Feeding Of Policemen

Nigeria's electoral governing body, INEC, on Friday, addressed viral reports that it budgeted N6billion to feed the Police during next year's general elections. 

INEC boss, Yakubu
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has denied claims that it budgeted N6 billion naira to feed policemen during the 2019 elections.
According to the electoral body, what it has is "a budget head for feeding all election personnel on election days".
Making the clarification in a Facebook post on Thursday night, INEC said the estimated budget for security personnel, which includes officers of the Nigeria Police Force, Immigration, Prison, among others, as well as electoral officers, is actually "more than 25 percent less than what is being bandied around".
The organisation also noted that the budget covers all elections, including by-elections, re-runs, run-offs and court ordered elections.
The post read: "INEC did not budget N6 billion to feed the police. There is no budget head for feeding the Police in the INEC Election Budget.
"What we do have is a budget head for feeding all election personnel on election days and it covers all INEC permanent and ad hoc staff, presiding officers, supervisors, monitors, collation and returning officers and all security personnel on election duty including the police, NSDC, Immigration, Prison & NDLEA officers, etc., numbering in excess of a million people.
"The estimated budget for this is more than 25% less than what is being bandied around and it covers all elections including bye elections, re runs, run offs and court ordered elections."
