The House of Representatives has asked the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to immediately set up physical enumerators and other assistance to conduct new voter registration across all federal constituencies.
This followed a motion by Representative Abubakar Yalleman (APC Jigawa), and supported by other lawmakers, who also urged INEC to set up voting points in safe areas only.
It would be recalled that INEC had put in place a machinery for a virtual continuous voters’ registration, but the online process does not seem satisfactory to the lawmakers.
They are worried that the online registration process will not cover all constituencies and might lead to disenfranchisement of Nigerians and voter apathy.
