INEC to issue voters' cards in Kogi

14 May 2014, 11:15

Kogi - The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) said it would next week commence the distribution of permanent voters’ cards in Kogi State.

The exercise will resume on May 23.

The State Resident Electoral Commissioner, Olusegun Agbaje, announced this in Lokoja, the state capital.

He said the distribution of the cards would take place in all the 5 248 polling units in the 21 local government councils of Kogi State.

Agbaje said only those who participated in the last registration exercise would be issued the cards, saying that the decision to distribute the cards at polling units was to facilitate easy collection by voters.

He said that the distribution of the cards, which would last till May 25, would be followed by registration of voters who had turned 18 years old.

The State Resident Electoral Commissioner said those who did not register in 2011 and those whose names were missing in INEC data base would be captured during the exercise which would last on June 1.

He added that those who fail to collect their permanent voter cards at the polling unit level will have the opportunity to do so at INEC local government offices across the state.

Agbaje said the commission was embarking on the exercise as part of strategies to achieve successful conduct of the 2015 elections.
