The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has detected 2.7 million cases of double registration carried out during the last continuous voter registration. The affected persons have been deleted from the voter registration.

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

The chairman reassured that the commission will do its best, regardless of the security challenge across the country.

He 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 localized 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.”

The chairman 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.”
