Election Chief: Boko Haram will not threaten vote

Election Chief: Boko Haram will not threaten vote. Abuja - Nigeria can hold elections in February even if Boko Haram violence makes voting impossible in parts of the northeast, the country's elections chief told AFP, arguing that the disenfranchisement of thousands of people would not undermine the entire vote. Attahiru Jega, who heads the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), said he was preparing to organise polling in the three states under emergency rule because of Islamist attacks. Based on current security assessments, the 57-year-old former academic said it was "inconceivable" that unrest could prevent voting throughout Adamawa, Borno and Yobe states.
