INEC TARGETS 80M VOTERS
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) hopes to have between 80 and 85  million voters  registered
ahead of next year’s elections ,according to the commission chairman, Professor  Mahmood Yakubu.
The voter register already contains 74 million names,Yakubu said at the 15th edition of the Daily Trust Dialogue, where he was represented by the INEC National Commissioner and Chairman of the Information and Voter Education Committee (IVEC), Mr Solomon Soyebi..

The INEC Director of Voter Education and Publicity, Mr Oluwole Osaze-Uzzi quoted Yakubu as saying the figure is expected to rise up to 85 million by 2019 because of the on-going nationwide Continuous Voter Registration (CVR).
He assured Nigerians that only their votes would determine the 2019 general elections and beyond.
Yakubu noted that there had been a lot of improvement in the electoral process since the current commission came on board.

He said the commission was not unmindful of the enormous responsibility of conducting elections in a democracy.

He said the INEC would continue to engage all stakeholders to ensure an all-inclusive process.
