INEC Denies Operating Registration Centres In Niger Republic by Shehuyinka: 1:54pm On Jul 02
THE Chief Press Secretary to the chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Rotimi Oyekanmi has denied reports that the commission is operating polling units in Niger Republic.

There are unconfirmed reports on the social media that INEC has been registering voters in some parts of the neighbouring country.

A Facebook user, Uche Nwabuike, had in a post, alleged that INEC was operating some illegal registration centres outside Nigeria.

Oyekanmi debunked the reports while speaking at a Twitter space organised by The ICIR on Permanent Voter Cards (PVC) registration.

He described the reports as baseless.

“By virtue of the provisions of the Constitution, all elections must take place in Nigeria. And to that extent, we cannot register voters or conduct elections in Nigeria.

“This is why Nigerians in the Diaspora cannot vote from abroad,” he said.

Oyekanmi disclosed that the number of Nigerians who had completed the voter registration process as of the end of June was 8.6 million, comprising 4.4 million women and 4.29 million men.

Meanwhile, Oyekanmi noted that the online PVC registration on INEC’s portal which lasted for 11 months was to ensure a speedy registration process but he observed that some Nigerians failed to take advantage of the process.

“During the first three months, we had days where two or three persons will turn up daily in the registration units but when it was close to the deadline, people started coming out calling for an extension,” he said.

Nigeria can do even worse than that. So, the allegation can be false or true. People have denied things that actually happened and borne witnesses to what never happened. Again, how honest have government agencies been?

Those who raised alarm about imported voters in 2015 and 2019 were called liars. Years later, someone notable publicly made the same accusation.

But they cannot deny the fact that they are registering people from Niger in Northern Nigeria

The Over bloated figure of people that have been registered in the North proves it.

How can a presidential candidate tells you the solution to insecurity in Nigeria is to recruit 50million Nigerians into the army and feed them with cassava, agbado and corn yet you are campaigning for him to win.
Are you OK?
Do you need help?

Comic relief?

And I was thinking about such moves, is it to help those Nigerians scattered in Birnin Nkonni, Zinder and Maradi who are quite closer to Sokoto, Kebbi and Katsina respectively or to get more voters from the Nigeriens. I'm glad they have come out to debunk the news..

Still doesn’t change the fact that some elements are bringing them though the porous borders for inec registrations. Same way they brought terrorists into our system, brought mercenaries that causes damages every here and there, while the southern boarders are heavily monitored.


E no go better for them.
