The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), has assured observers of safety during the forthcoming general elections.
According to the INEC Chairman, Professor Mahmood Yakubu, both the foreign and domestic observers would also have unfettered access to whatever areas they wish to observe before during and after the elections.
Yakubu, speaking on Tuesday during a briefing for accredited observers in Abuja, also said they would be given a soft copy of the complete compendium of information which according to him is vital for their mission.
The Acting IGP, Adamu Mohammed while giving a breakdown of the state of security in the run-up to the elections and guidelines to be adhered to by the election monitors, also assured them of safety.
There are a total of 36 foreign and 119 domestic accredited observer groups for the elections.
