The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), is to re-start the delimitation of constituencies suspended shortly before the general elections in 2015.

Acting Chairman of INEC, Mrs Amina Zakari, said this when the new Surveyor General of the Federation (SGOF), Mr Ebisintei Awudu, visited her in Abuja.

 

This information, gleaned from the commission's daily bulletin on Tuesday, quoted Zakari as explaining that it was suspended due to the high level of controversy it generated at that time.

"Now that the elections are over, we have to dust our Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) and process the agreement to commence the delimitation," she said.

 

She explained that apart from the Office of the SGOF, the commission had also signed partnership agreement with Nigerian Postal Service.

Zakari said INEC also signed MoU with National Space Research and Development Agency, National Population Commission and others, for collaboration on the project.

She stressed that the MoU with OSGOF was for the provision of maps and for technical support.
