Ahead of today’s elections, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) yesterday said that Kwara state has 1,407,400 registered voters and 1,149,969 have collected their permanent voter’s cards (PVCs), leaving a balance of 257,431.

State Resident Electoral Commissioner, Garba Madami told reporters in Ilorin, that the balance has been forwarded to the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) for safe keep.

Madami revealed that 11,992 people have been recruited for the exercise, noting that they had all been trained and deployed accordingly. He noted that over 200 media men applied for accreditation, but 109 got accredited.

He urged the political actors to play the game according to the rules and “be reminded that there are lots of dos and don’ts which must be religiously observed as the law will catch up with anyone trying to flout the laws.”
