INEC Says Election Won’t Hold In 38 Polling Units In Imo

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), has on Wednesday, said the election will not hold in 38 polling units in Imo State during the coming November 11 governorship poll.

The INEC’s Resident Electoral Commissioner in the state, Sylvia Agu, disclosed this at a press conference in Owerri.

He explained that there was zero voter registration in the 38 polling units.

The REC disclosed that 2,318,919 people had collected their Permanent Voter Cards while 101,003 people had yet to collect their PVCs ahead of the election.

She said, “The number of collected PVCs is 2,318,919, while uncollected PVCs stand at 101,003. The polling units where elections won’t take place are 38. These are places with zero registration numbers. Election will be held in 4,720 polling units. The total number of polling units is 4,758.

“Our workforce for the election revolves around 21,000 staff. We are ready for this election. It is an off-cycle election, the very first one in the history of Imo State and we are very prepared for it.

“Election will start at 8.30 am and stop at 2.30 pm. We will collate results electronically.”

She said that out of the 13 programmes lined up by the commission for the election, INEC had perfectly executed 11, remaining just two items on its list which, she said, are the last day for campaigns by political parties and their candidates, which is 9th of November; and the election proper slated for 11th of November.
