The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has stated on Tuesday that it is doing its best to ensure that no eligible voter in the country is disenfranchised during the 2019 general election.

Abdullahi Kaugama, INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) in Kaduna state, made this declaration in Kaduna during a meeting with political parties and other election stakeholders on Continuous Voter Registration.

The REC said that the nationwide continuous voters’ registration was meant to capture all eligible voters ahead of the 2019 polls.

According to him, the exercise will be flagged-off in the state at Hunkuyi, Kudan local government on Thursday, and would subsequently commence in all INEC offices in the 23 local government areas of the state.

Kaugama explained that the exercise was restricted to INEC local council offices due to logistics constraints, but would later be extended to all the 255 wards and polling units.

He urged political parties, CSOs, and the media to monitor the exercise to ensure that no person registers by proxy.

The REC said those registered during the exercise would collect their permanent voter’s card three months after the exercise.
