INEC Voter Registration Begins in May, 2014

Prof. Attahiru Jega the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC)  said the commission will conduct a voter registration in May, 2014.

He assured Nigerians that the 2015 general elections will be the most successful in the nation’s history because of the commission’s preparedness for them.

Speaking at a meeting between INEC and State Independent Electoral Commissions (SIECs), organised by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), Prof Jega said: “The continuous registration exercise is to ensure that those who turned 18 years between 2011 and now are registered before the 2015 general elections. Also, those who were 18 and above but were unable to register – for one reason or the other – will be given opportunity to register.”

He call for a synergy between INEC and SIEC, adding that the conference which was organised by the United Nations Development Programme was timely towards ensuring free, fair, peaceful and credible elections in the future.
