Voter registration: Shortage of manpower, faulty equipment mar exercise

Inadequate manpower and faulty equipment are affecting voter registration in many states, Saturday PUNCH’s investigations have revealed.

Visits by PUNCH correspondents to some Independent National Electoral Commission registration centres across the country showed that while some residents couldn’t register due to unavailability and/or shortage of INEC personnel, others couldn’t because of inadequate and/or malfunctioning machines such as laptop computers and printers.

Investigations this week showed that while residents of states including Lagos, Ondo, Enugu, Ogun and Taraba complained about voter registration, their counterparts in Kastina and Minna said it was hitch-free.
