The Electoral Commission, on Wednesday, September 23, 2020, issued a press release concerning its decision to extend the ongoing exhibition of the voters’ register.
“As part of efforts to serve the interest of its Stakeholders and promote greater participation and inclusion, the Electoral Commission has extended the Voters Exhibition Exercise from Friday 25th September to Sunday 27th September 2020.” The press release stated.
This decision was arrived at so as to enable all prospective voters the opportunity to visit the various exhibition centres to verify their details, which the EC believes is instrumental in achieving a clean and credible voters register:
“The Commission is of the view that this extension will allow even more Stakeholders to check and verify their voter registration details. This is instrumental for the achievement of a clean and credible Voters Register.”
The Electoral Commission, therefore, urged the general public to utilise this opportunity to go and verify their details at the various centres or use the SMS platform by sending their ID numbers to the shortcode 1422.
