INEC Registers 406,571 New Voters In Kwara
Kwara State recorded a total number of 406,571 new registered voters in the just concluded continuous votersâ€™ registration (CVR) exercise.
But, the resident electoral commissioner in the state, Malam Garba Attahiru Madami, said that the figure is tentative and subject to change anytime soon as the commission will do a clean up to eliminate double and multiple registrations.
â€śThe accuracy of the registration is subject to the fact that theyâ€™re going to look at it at the headquarters to detect those that have done double registration,â€ť he said.
He, however, said that after the clean up to eliminate double registration, the accurate figure will be available to the public by the end of the month, adding that â€śby the end of August, we should be able to give the accurate figure. The last time, when they sent us figure, over 29,000 had double registration.â€ť
The voter registration was done through online and physical capturing across all the 16 local government areas in the state as well as the head office of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Ilorin.
