INEC to revisit constituency delimitation

03 September 2015, 17:02

Abuja - The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has disclosed plans  to revisit its earlier suspended plan of delimitation of constituencies in the country.

This was contained in a daily bulletin of the commission made available to journalists in Abuja, on Wednesday.

According to the bulletin, the acting Chairman of the commission, Amina Bala Zakari, dropped the hint in Abuja  when the new Surveyor General of the Federation, Ebisintei Awudu, led a delegation to the commission.

Zakari pointed out that the commission had before the last general elections commenced the process of delimitation but the exercise was put on hold due to the high level of controversy generated by the project at that time.

According to her, “now that the elections are over, we have to dust our Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) and process the agreement to commence the delimitation.”

She explained that apart from the Office of the Surveyor General of the Federation, the commission had also signed partnership agreements with sister agencies like the Nigerian Postal Service (NIPOST), National Air Space Research and Development Agency (NASRDA), National Population Commission (NPC) and others for collaboration on the project.

Zakari added that the commission had already signed an MoU with OSGOF not only for the provision of maps but for technical supports for the smooth conduct of the exercise ahead of the future elections.
