After the fire incident earlier today, at the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) headquarters, no sensitive materials were destroyed by the fire.
This was stated by the commission in a statement signed by the National Commissioner and Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee Mr. Festus Okoye.
The fire outbreak occurred just two days after the Corporate Affairs Commission headquarter also had a fire outbreak and a week after the Office of the Accountant General of the Federation caught fire.

Mr. Okoye says that apart from the furniture and equipment, nothing sensitive was destroyed by the fire.He said the fire which was quickly extinguished affected one office in the Election and Party Monitoring Department, which is an annex detached from the main building.
“Apart from some office furniture and equipment, nothing sensitive was destroyed. Reports of party primaries and conventions are intact. The campaign finance database is also not affected,” Okoye said in the statement.
“The incident will therefore not affect the administrative and technical operations of the commission in any way,” he said adding that investigation into the cause of the inferno has begun.
