INEC removes names of 109 foreigners from voter register

The Independent National Electoral Commission says it has ordered the removal of names of 190 non-Nigerians from the country’s voter register as part of measures to clean up the register.

The commission disclosed this in a statement issued by its Director of Voter Education and Publicity, Mr. Oluwole Osaze-Uzzi, on Thursday in Abuja.

The Nigerian Immigration Service recently retrieved several Permanent Voter Cards and National Identity cards from foreigners who were alleged to have registered as voters.


Osaze-Uzzi reiterated INEC’s commitment in ensuring that the voter register was free from unqualified registrations.
This, according to the commission, is also to ensure that the register of voters’ meets internationally accepted standards.

“INEC will continue to strengthen its relationship with security agencies and other organisations in ensuring that the electoral process is improved,” Osaze-Uzzi said. (NAN)
