Mr Chebukati has told a committee of Mps that the commission is ready to conduct the referendum to amend the constitution.
His declaration will calm nerves of those proposing the referendum after fears were earlier raised that the commission may not be ready to conduct the huge task.
However, the IEBC chairman said he is concerned about the lack of enough funds which may negatively affect the carrying out of the exercise.
Wafula's declaration comes a time there is low tone talks in the media that Uhuru Kenyatta's team is pushing for a maneuver that will enable the bill signed into law by the president hence avoiding a costly referendum.
A maneuver that could encounter legal challenges because their are clauses in the BBI that must be subjected to a referendum.
