2015: INEC takes delivery of 20 million voters’ cards

The Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Professor Attahiru Jega, yesterday said the commission had taken delivery of over 20 million voters’ cards from the supplier in preparation for the 2015 elections, adding that efforts to get the rest were on. Jega made this disclosure yesterday as a guest speaker of the national old students association, Olivet Baptist High School’s night of excellence dinner held in Ikeja, Lagos and hosted by the President of the association, Mr. Olusegun Ahmadu. While speaking, Jega revealed the modalities for the 2015 elections which include the use of card readers, serial numbering and colour coding of ballot papers to vary from constituency to constituency and unique result sheets for each and every polling unit. Stressing that the commission had been making additional efforts for the 2015 elections, on the strength of the lessons learnt from the 2011 elections, Jega added that unless elections were reformed and citizens votes truly made to count, good democratic governance would continue to elude the nation. Since assumption of duty in 2010, he said the commission had assiduously worked to improve the electoral process and incrementally satisfy citizens’ desire for their votes to count and for democracy to be deepened.
