Resident Electoral Commissioner to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Oyo State, Barrister Mutiu Agboke on Monday says the commission still has over 700,000 uncollected permanent Voter Cards.
He stated that the Commission will soon begin Continous Voter Registration ahead of 2023 elections.
Agboke stated this when he paid a visit to the Ibadan Zonal office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
Agboke attributed the level of credibility recorded in the 2019 general elections to the involvement of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in monitoring the elections across the country to prevent compromises through vote buying and vote selling.
Agboke also specially thanked the acting Chairman of the Commission, Ibrahim Magu, for agreeing to work with the electoral body to help discharge its duties to the satisfaction of most Nigerians.
In his welcome address presented on behalf of the EFCC acting Chairman, the Commission’s Ibadan Zonal Head, Friday Ebelo, appreciated staff of the electoral body ‘for putting Nigeria first’ in the discharge of their constitutional duties.
