The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has disclosed plans to create registration centres at schools in Anambra State.
The State Resident Electoral Commissioner, Dr. Nkwachukwu Orji, revealed this yesterday in Awka.
Receiving members of the National Orientation Agency in his office, he said the plan is to encourage students to participate in the ongoing registration.
According to him, it became necessary to capture the large number of eligible voters in tertiary institutions.
Orji explained that the commission had notified the authorities concerned about the move.
He urged the schools to choose the days that are most convenient for the eligible voters to register in the schools.
The NOA Director, Charles Nwoji, said his team was at the commission to commend it on the successful conduct of the governorship and senatorial elections in November 2017 and January 2018.
Orji had also disclosed that it had increased registration points by creating additional floating centres in local government areas. These include places with peculiarities, including those in the water prone areas,” he said.
