INDEPENDENT National
Electoral Commission (INEC)
has disclosed that over 200,000
voters registered in the on-going
continuous voters’ registration in
Anambra State.
The National Commissioner
and Chairman, Information and
Voter Education Committee, Mr.
Solomon Soyebi revealed this
as a guest on a Channels TV‎
breakfast programme in Abuja,
Tuesday.
Soyebi said the enthusiasm
displayed by prospective voters
indicated that there would be
massive turnout in the election.
The commissioner said over
200,000 Permanent Voters’ Cards
(PVCs) would soon be ready for
collection in the state.
He also said about 3million new
voters have so far been registered
nationwide.
He said, “With this large number
of turnout for registration, it’s an
indicator that we are going to
have a lot of people coming out
to vote. So, logistically, we are
ready.”
“The issue of voting points in
Anambra is going to come alive;
we are going to be voter friendly;
where we have more than 500
voters, the voting points will
come alive like polling units.”
“Of course, the electronic
transmission of results will go side
by side with the manual format.
We want to really experiment the
e-transmission just for the sake of
test running,” he explained.
