According to him, this is in order to checkmate security threats on its personnel and facilities during the guber poll.
Yakubu went on to note that the development of an application was necessary following the spate of arson, vandalism and other forms of attacks targeted at the commission’s facilities.
The INEC chairman also said that the application would be integrated into the Election Monitoring and Support Centre (EMSC) to avert or mitigate potential risks or threats to the election.
