INEC registers 125,198 new voters in Enugu

No fewer than 125,198 eligible voters were registered for the first and second quarters in the Continuous Voters Registration in Enugu State.

The state Independent National Electoral Commissioner, Mr. Emeka Ononamadu, said this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Enugu on Saturday.

He said 56,562 eligible persons registered in the second quarter of the CVR that ended on September 19 in the state.

He added that 68,672 registered in the first quarter.

He said this showed a  difference of 12,110 in between the two quarters, indicating a downward trend in fresh eligible voters’ registration.

The commissioner explained that the commission opened eight additional centres during the second quarter to reach communities that were far from their  council headquarters.

He announced that the third quarter registration would begin on October 30 and would run for three months.

Ononamadu said 139,342 Permanent Voters Cards were still at various INEC council area offices, adding that the Enugu North and Enugu East council areas had the highest number of uncollected PVCs.

He  stated that the commission had so far distributed 4,716 PVCs in the 17 council areas of the state between July 31 and September 19.
