INEC TO PUBLISH LIST OF REGISTERED VOTERS ON JANUARY 7
Ahead of general election this year, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) says it will publish the list of registered voters on Monday, January 7. INEC Director of Voter Education, Mr Oluwole Osaze-Uzzi stated this during an interview with newsmen in Abuja.
Mr Osaze-Uzzi also dismissed some allegations of the rumoured attempt by some politicians to buy uncollected voter cards. He explained that the commission was fully prepared for the polls by constant training and retraining of its staff members.
When asked about the impact of the current strike embarked by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) on INEC’s preparedness for the elections, Mr Osaze-Uzzi stated that the commission was working on some other plans. Although he admitted that some tertiary education students were hired for the exercise, he, however, stated that it was only considered in states where there was a shortage of corps members.
