Anambra INEC Opens Twenty five More Reg Centers.

 Anambra state Independent National Electoral Commission INEC has added twenty five more voter registration centers in order to meet up with the surge of illegible voters seeking to register as voters in the area.

By this addition , the number has increased from sixty two to eighty seven while the office of the Commission in Nnewi South local government area has been moved to Nnewi North local government area.

Similarly the commission"s office at Idemili North, Ogbaru and Ayamelum council areas attacked by gunmen have also been reopened.

According to the Anambra Resident Electoral Commissioner Dr Nkwachukwu Orji who spoke to reporters today in Awka;

"I am pleased to announce that the Commission has created additional 25 registration centres in Anambra State, and that they commenced operation by 9.00 am today. The locations of the centres will be distributed to you shortly. The additional centres bring the total number of centres in Anambra State to 87. We have reopened some LGA Offices that were shut down as a result of insecurity. Specifically, on Tuesday, 7 June 2022, the Idemili North LGA Office was reopened. Today, 14 June 2022, we have resumed registration exercise in Ogbaru and Ayamelum LGAs. 


"We have reorganized our operational procedure by separating people seeking biometric services from those that require non-biometric services. In this sense, biometric services involves fresh registration while non-biometric services include request for PVC Replacement, Voter Transfer, and Update. Let me restate that those requesting nonbiometric services need not to come to the registration centres. These services can be obtain through the Commission’s CVR Portal. However, we have deployed personnel to assist those who cannot access the online portal at the various registration centres. 


"In areas where the security situation permits, we would extend our time of operation, which is 9.00 am to 3.00 pm. We would continue expand our public communication to inform and educate members of the public. 


"The State Office is addressing reports of misconduct by staff of the Commission. To bolster public confidence in the Commission, the two Registration Officers accused of misconduct in Nnewi North LGA have been replaced, while investigation of the matter continues. We have set up a WhatsApp line with the following number: 0704 352 8329 to receive complaints and enquiries. Complaints should contain specific details, including names and locations, that would aid the Commission in judicious handling of the issues. 


"We wish to restate our appeal for the patience, understanding and cooperation of the public in this challenging time" the Rec added.
