The administrative secretary of INEC, Mrs Rose Oriahran-Anthony, said this in Udu during the monitoring of the continuous voters’ registration (CVR) across the state.

Oriahran-Anthony said that the voters’ registration register would be presented to DSEIC in the coming week ahead of the January local government election.

She said that those that registered during the first phase of the CVR had already been captured in the register and would be eligible to vote during the local government election in the state.

She appealed to those that were complaining that they were yet to be captured to be patience.

The administrative secretary who said that this was the third phase of the monitoring of CVR commended the first and second phases as being successful.

She said that INEC in the state was trying to resolve the complaints that there was one machine in each local government and gave the assurances that by 2019 CVR would be done ward levels in the state.

She, however, appealed to those that were yet to be captured to cooperate with INEC on the development adding that more machines would soon be added to the existing ones.

Mr Dennis Omagbemi, a prospective voter said that the one-machine challenge had slowed the process of registration.

Omagbemi said that this slow process had made many voters lose interest in registering because those that came from far places to register could not be captured.

He appealed to INEC to increase the machines and take them to the ward levels as soon as possible.

Also, Mr Lucky Oboh said INEC should fulfill its promise soon by taking more capturing machines to ward levels so as to capture many intending voters.
