INEC To Retain 2019 Voter Register — Says REC

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) will retain the 2019 Edo State voter register for the governorship election, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.


Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) Dr. Johnson Alalibo made this known during a dialogue with the Nigeria Civil Society Situation Room, a coalition of over 70 civil society organisations, in Abuja.

“The commission suspended collection of voter cards with continuous voter registration due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

So, we are reverting to what we had in the 2019 general election.

This is what we are using.”
