INEC: We’re Ready For Improved Election

The Independent National Electoral Commission INEC has expressed its readiness to conduct a near-perfect governorship election in Anambra State on November 6th.

INEC Chairman, Yakubu Mahmood, announced this at a workshop for reporters on Election Processes and Procedures in Awka, the state capital.

Mahmood, who was represented by the commission’s Director of Publicity, Victor Aluko, said the November 6th election would enjoy the deployment of modern technology which would make it more improved than all previous exercises.

He said the entire process from registration to transmission of results would be fully automated, including the use of bimodal, which took care of unimodal identification processes that only verified voters by fingerprints.

The INEC chairman said there were a total of 2,525,471 registered voters in the state after an additional 77,471 generated during the just-concluded Continuous Voter Registration CVR exercise.

Mahmood urged reporters to help the commission disseminate the right information as this would be crucial to the success of the election process, adding that sending the wrong information could inflame the society.
