Child voters: INEC says discovery is proof of transparency


Tea Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has said that the test of voter kids and multiple registered voters on your Voter View Scheme is a sign of your “commitment to transparency.”

This was revealed in an INEC statement Thursday afternoon after the commission discovered multiple registered voters and those under the voting age in its data.

INEC said that by the end of the exercise it hopes to have “improved the quality of voter registration.”

INEC said it began posting preliminary voter registration on November 12 in its 8,809 registration areas (districts) nationwide.

They added that this is the first time it has posted the record online in Nigerian history.

INEC stated that the purpose of the display is to allow Nigerians to examine the preliminary registration and make claims about misspellings of names, personal details or missing names “for persons under the age of 18, deceased persons, foreigners or those who make false claims for that can be removed from the registry.

They also urged that the above context be considered that recent media reports of the presence of ineligible registrants should be seen.

  • “The full display of all registrants speaks to the commission’s commitment to transparency. The fact that these ineligible probable registrants are being identified means that the objectives of the display of claims and objections are being met.”

They urged the general public to follow the procedures and report that these requirements are being met.

  • “We wish to assure Nigerians that the commission is committed to transparency and accountability in all its activities,”, said the INEC.

Display of physical copies: The INEC will begin the exhibition of physical copies of the register of claims and objections at two levels, first at the registration area level from November 13 to 18 and at the local government level that ends on November 25.
