The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has relocated its office in Qu'an Pan LGA of Plateau State.

Materials for the presidential and National Assembly elections were destroyed by fire at the INEC in Qua'an Pan Local Government Area in Plateau State on Saturday, February 9, 2019.

Ballot boxes, generators, electronic and manual voter registers, uncollected Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs), among other materials, were burnt beyond recognition, and the security guard, who was expected to raise the alarm, was said to be drunk at the time of the incident.
