INEC issues voter cards in Zamfara

26 May 2014, 19:05

Gusau - The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Zamfara, on Saturday said the commission had issued Permanent voter cards in 11 Local Government Areas in the state.

INEC’s spokesman in the state, Garba Galadima, made this known in an interview in Gusua.

Galadima said that fresh registration would be done Gusau, Gumi and Zurmi Local Government Areas on May 28.

He said that majority of the polling units in Gusau, Gumi and Zurmi had problem of multiple registration.

"During the last registration exercise in 2011, many people registered more than once while others finger print could not be seen on the computer screen,’’ he said.

He those problems led to the cancellation of the exercise in those areas.

Galadima, however, said that a few units in the other 11 Local Governments also experienced the same problem but it was not as bad as in Gusau, Gumi and Zurmi.

"In Zurmi out of 187 polling units, only six polling units are able to issue permanent voter card,’’ he said.

He advised those that would not be able to collect their permanent voter cards at the end of the exercise on Sunday, May 25 to go to their Local Government Secretariat and collect them.
