The Resident Electoral Commissioner of the Independent National
Electoral Commission, Ogun State, Mr. Sam Olumekun, on Thursday,
said the residents of Ogun State would get their Permanent Voters
Cards by September.
He said this in Abeokuta at a stakeholders’ forum on governance,
peace and political stability, organised by the Committee for the
Defence of Human Rights, Ogun State chapter.
Olumekun while speaking on the topic, “Towards a free, fair and
credible 2015 general elections in Nigeria,” said the INEC was still
on the second phase of the project, and that it would be Ogun
State’s turn in September.
He said, “The INEC has injected a new innovation; we have moved
from temporary voters’ cards in 2011 to the level of issuing
Permanent Voter Cards. Where we are now is second phase.
“In the third phase, it will be Ogun State’s turn, which will
commence next month. The second phase will end this August.”
