INEC removes names of 190 Non-Nigerians from the Voters’ Register

In a sustained bid to clean up the voters’ register, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has ordered the removal of 190 non-Nigerians from the Register of voters’.

It would be recalled that the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS) recently announced that it had retrieved several Permanent Voter Cards and National Identity cards from foreigners who were alleged to have registered as voters.
INEC has continually reiterated that it would not rest on its oars at ensuring that the Voter Register was free from unqualified registrations in order to ensure the register of voters’ met internationally accepted standards.

The Commission further said it would continue to strengthen its relationship with security agencies and other organizations in ensuring that the electoral process is improved.
