Kwara State is expected to be one of the flash points in next year’s elections but the electorates in the state are treating the build up to 2019 polls with kids gloves.

In this light, the Independent National Electoral Commission (lNEC) in Kwara has said it has a target to register over 100,000 additional voters before the conduct of 2019 general elections in the state.

The lNEC Resident Electoral Commissioner in Kwara, Garuba Attaihiru-Madami, who said this while addressing the personnel of National Orientation Agency NOA in the state expressed dissatisfaction with what he described as paltry figure of 160,000 eligible voters so far registered in the state.

According to the Resident Electoral Commissioner, Kwara which was one of the first generation of states in Nigeria should have recorded over 100,000 eligible voters.

“The lNEC needs special orientation from NOA to cater for low number of 160,000 eligible voters recorded so far in the state ” he said.

Attairu-Madami said lNEC would decentralise the PVC registration centres across the state to enable more eligible voters register without stress.

The lNEC Commissioner called on all stakeholders in the state to collaborate with lNEC with the aim of actualising the registration of over 100,000 additional eligible voters before the 2019 general elections.
