The member House of Representatives Yagba East, Yagba West and Mopamuro Federal Constituency, Hon. Leke Abejide has asked Inec to develop a mechanism to remove names of dead and fictitious voters from the register.
The member asked the Independent Electoral Commission INEC to conduct vigorous enlightenment for Nigerians to be more aware of what makes the register more bogus on the number of dead and unreal persons.
He stated that during the last general election, it was glaring and crystal clear that people that were long dead had their names displayed in the voter register.
According to the lawmaker, his deceased father who passed on long ago has his name displayed on the board in the INEC list.
“There are millions of fictitious voters who do not exist anywhere on this planet Earth yet have their hands on INEC registered voters, some also have multiple registrations with the intent of rigging elections but the advent of BVAS has rendered those impossible”.
In his resolutions, Abejide proposed to the house that Inec should develop a mechanisms or software application where families who lost their loved ones can help report the demise of a particular PVC number so that it can be duly removed from the INEC register, wards and polling units.
Ince should also look into the last two election cycles back to back to delete whoever has not participated or voted in the last two election cycles from the register as non-existing human beings.
