Daring to be different, that has always been the style of Ayodele Fayose, Ekiti state governor.

In his characteristic manner of titling towards ‘populist’ acts, the governor has promised more off days from work for the Ekiti people if that will ensure that they are captured in the ongoing voters’ registration exercise embarked upon by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Fayose lamented that the people of Ekiti state often shortchange themselves due to the lackadaisical approach to data based coalition and he would not want that to be the case in the build up to the 2018 election in the state.

He called on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to rectify the hitches recorded in its ongoing continuous voters’ registration exercise in the state.

“That is why I won’t care to declare more holidays for people to get registered. But I want to call on INEC to look into the faulty data capturing machines. We have had bad experiences since the commencement of the CVR programme last week and the commission must resolve all these anomalies in the interest of our people,” he said.

“I also want to note that all these problems won’t reoccur during the 2018 polls, that is the main reason why INEC, as a commission, must improve on its efficiency.
