INEC deletes 2.7 million persons for double registration


On Tuesday the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) said it removes 2.7 million peoples cards for double registration carried out during the last Continuous Voter Registration adding that the affected persons have been deleted from the voter register.

Mahmood Yakubu, the chairman disclosed this at a National Endowment for Democracy event in Washington DC in the United States on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, the spokesperson to the Chairman, Rotimi Oyekanmi, confirmed the development to Newsmen.

The chairman, said "It is a perennial issue because, at the end of the day, it is not new but the dimension of the insecurity is new in the sense that in the past, it was localised or confined to a particular part of the country – the North-East but now, it is more widespread.

"We are keeping our eyes, particularly, on the North-West and the South-Eastern part of the country. Elections are conducted by human beings.

"We worry about the security of our officials, materials, and even the voters themselves. Without them, elections cannot be conducted."

He also added that the commission "has spoken to the security agencies and they have assured us that the situation will improve before the elections. So, fingers crossed."
