INEC commences CVR in Madagali LGA

Independent National Electoral Commission ( INEC ) has commenced Continuous Voters Registration ( CVR ) in Madagali Local Government Area of Adamawa, Alhaji Kasim Gaidam, the state Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) said.

Gaidam told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Yola on Tuesday that the exercise was initially stopped following Boko Haram attacks on villages in the area.

He said the registration followed intensive stakeholders’ meeting between security agencies, government officials and elders from the area.

He added that “finally, INEC has fixed Wednesday, Sept. 20, to start Continuous Voters Registration in Madagali Local Government Area of Adamawa.

“The exercise was halted due to insecurity challenges.

“However, security situation has improved now and following stakeholders meeting, CVR can now start.”

He announced that a total of 86,631 eligible voters had earlier been registered across the state.

He said there were about 130,000 unclaimed Permanent Voter Cards in the state and appealed to genuine owners to come forward and claim them.
