Lafia - The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Nasarawa on Thursday said that it has concluded plans to embark on voter registration ahead of the 2015 general elections.
The state INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), Ahmed Makama, made the disclosure in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lafia.
Makama said: “The National Continuous Voter Registration (CRV) is in preparation towards the 2015 general elections in the country.
"The exercise is for those who just turned 18 years and were not captured during the last exercise to enable them exercise their franchise during the 2015 general elections.
“There are Nigerians who just attained 18 years this year. And if we do not give them the chance to register, it means we are denying them the opportunity to vote during 2015 general election in the country
“The voter registration exercise, when it commences, will last for only 15 days.
"And the exercise will be conducted at the various registration centres across the state,’’ Makama added.
He appealed to the people to avoid double registration, adding that the continuous registration was only for those who just attain 18 years and people who were yet to register and be captured.
