Issues surrounding the new voter card in Niger State
06 January 2015, 12:12
It is clear that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Niger State chapter is not ready to register new citizens who might have reached the age of 18 and above and the holders of INEC papers with the plastic voter card.
People were seen gathered near each polling unit waiting patiently for INEC officials from last weak up till this moment without knowing the cause for delays and no official statement concerning the matter.
It was learnt that one of the zones (zone c) calculated with larger PDP supporters is said to be considered and other areas with larger PDP supporters is considered also in other zones (zone A and B).
What then is in the mind of the INEC officials? Are they helping PDP to defranchise the populace for the incoming presidential elections? And if not, then why the delay?
