Anambra Gov Election: INEC To Provide Albinos With Magnifying Goggles

The Independent National Electoral Commission says it has provided magnifying goggles for polling units to enable people living with albinism to recognise political parties’ logos in the Nov. 18 Anambra elections.

The Chairman of the commission, Prof Mahmood Yakubu, made this known while receiving EU Observer Mission to Nigeria led by Mr Santiago Ayxela on Thursday in Abuja.

He said the provision of the goggles was part of the commission’s efforts to ensure inclusiveness in the elections.


“We are doing a lot about inclusiveness for women, youths and people living with disabilities in terms of access to the polling units and participation in the elections.

“One of the things we have done in this regard in forthcoming Anambra elections is provision of magnifying glasses in polling units to enable people living with albinism to see logo of parties and make their choices,” he said.
