Secondus Charges Electorate As INEC Displays V oters’ Register


The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus has charged Nigerian voters to troop out to their various polling booths to check their names as the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) displays voters’ register at all polling units across the country. It would be recalled that INEC commenced the display of voters’ register from yesterday.
Secondus said that the desire to rescue Nigeria from the clueless All Progressives Congress-led Federal Government would be meaningless if everything pertaining to voting was not sorted out ahead. According to a statement signed by his Media Adviser, Ike Abonyi, the PDP national chairman said the essence of the four-day display as stipulated by the Electoral Act was to ensure that no voter was disenfranchised and this the first step to avoid it
He said that cross checking and confirming the details ahead of the election was a mechanism put in place to reduce attempts by the electoral umpires to manipulate the system by saying that names of voters were not available.
“By cross checking and re-cross checking, the voters wittingly would have begun the battle to frustrate rigging of the election,” he said.
Secondus urged voters who notice issues with their particulars to cry out loudly immediately by going to the electoral centres to complain for rectification.
