Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC Professor Mahmood Yakubu, has assured that the commission would ensure free and fair rerun National Assembly election in Rivers State.
 
Professor Yakubu spoke shortly after President Muhammadu Buhari inaugurated six INEC national commissioners at the presidential villa, Abuja. 
 
He described the allegations against INEC as mere distractions that will not deter the commission from its responsibilities.
 
The INEC boss said the commission was satisfied with the assurances it had received from security agencies on the election fixed for Saturday.
