Dr Ishmael Igbani, Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, National Commissioner, (Election Monitoring), said on Monday in Abuja that the commission has commenced cleaning up of voter’s register and data consolidation.

He told News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the exercise was part of the activities lined up by INEC to ensure a hitch-free 2015 general elections.

Igbani expressed optimism that the exercise would eliminate duplication or multiple registrations.

The National Commissioner added that detection and elimination of multiple registrations was made possible by the newly technology deployed by the commission.

“Through the exercise the commission had detected 93,526 multiple registration cases in Anambra ahead of the Nov.16 governorship election.

“This represents five per cent of the registered voters in Anambra and they have been removed from the voter’s register”.

Igbani said to ensure the best ever conducted election in the country chip-based permanent voter cards would soon be issued to all voters.

He said that the card was designed to prevent multiple voting and to achieve “more credible and transparent polls”.

He said the commission had mapped out strategies for adequate sensitisation and enlightenment of the general public. (NAN)
