by on June 2, 2016
Edo State Resident Electoral Commis­sioner (REC) of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Mr Sam Olume­kun, has disclosed that the commission is fully prepared to kick-off the Continuous Voters Reg­istration to herald the September governorship election in the state.
Mr Olumekun, who stated this yesterday in Be­nin City said the exercise will involve individuals from 18 years and above. He noted that the exercise will capture the names of electorates in the latest list of eligible voters to enable them perform their civic responsibilities.
The REC, who spoke through the Public Re­lations Officer of the commission, Mrs Sule Priscillia in a telephone expressed readiness on the Continu­ous Voters Registration process which would al­low those who had earlier been registered but were denied the permanent voters card, to pick them from the commission’s head office in Benin City.
He stated that at the end of the exercise, the commission would pro­vide individuals and groups the opportunity for claims and objections, adding that all figures would aggregate and ac­tual fig-ures or final list of authentic voters would be published or made public for use during the polls.
Olumekun assured that steps have been taken to ensure that the process is hitch-free such that com­plaints are eliminated. He further declared that the notice of election for the state governor-ship elec­tion in line with Section 30, Sub-section 1 of the Electoral Act 2010 pro­vides that such announce­ment will be made not later than 90 days before the exercise.
