Breaking : 2015 Presidential Election
ballot papers found in London


Ballots meant for the
Nigerian presidential election were found
yesterday at the premises of a local printer
in the Essex area of London .
Our sources said the sensitive election
materials , which ought to have arrived in
Nigeria earlier in the week , were unsecured
at the premises of Panther Printing Services
in London. SaharaReporters was able to
confirm that a Nigerian firm named Cemoz
International Limited had been contracted to
print some ballot papers for the 2015
presidential elections.
A spokesman for the Independent National
Electoral Commission , Kayode Idowu,
confirmed to SaharaReporters that Cemoz
International Limited was one of the firms
awarded the contract to print ballot papers .
It appears that, upon getting the contract ,
Cemoz went shopping for printers in London
to print the ballot papers and then
contracted these other printers to serially
number the ballot papers. Although the ballot
papers for the presidential elections for
several southwest states were seen lying
around the premises of the printing
company in Essex, a staff at the company,
speaking to a correspondent of
SaharaReporters , said the firm only had the
contract to print some of the ballot papers
for Jigawa State . Thinking that our
correspondent worked for Cemoz , the
representative of the Essex-based company
asked if we could give them more jobs ,
adding that their company had mastered
how to print ballot papers .
SaharaReporters later obtained a bill of
lading showing that Cemoz planned to ship
the ballot papers to Nigeria a few hours
before February 14th, the day initially sect
aside for the presidential election. INEC
subsequently postponed the election for six
weeks .
