PVC: INEC reassures Lagos residents of more CVR machines, urges calm

“The commission at this point wishes to inform and assure all residents that adequate security and machinery have been put in place to capture all eligible voters.

 

INEC in Lagos State has assured residents of  deployment of more Voter Enrolment Devices (IVED) to capture eligible applicants in the ongoing Continuous Voter Registration (CRV) exercise in the state.

Mr Olusegun Agbaje, INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner in Lagos state gave this assurance in a statement by the commission’s Administrative Secretary, Mr James Popoola on Friday in Lagos.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports the commission’s  assurance was coming on the backdrop of allegations that  it  did not  provide enough enrolment machines to capture the surge at some registration points in the state.

“INEC has observed with concern, recent happenings in the ongoing CVR  exercise in the state.

“The commission at this point wishes to inform and assure all residents that adequate security and machinery have been put in place to capture all eligible voters.

“To this end, the commission has provided more registration machines in the state and these INEC Voter Enrolment Devices (IVED) machines will be deployed to the 20 Local Government Areas in addition to what they already have,” Agbaje said.

The INEC boss said that the deployment of additional IVED machines will start from June 14.
