INEC To Relocate 16 Registration Area Centres In Yobe Over Insecurity

As preparations for the 2023 elections intensify, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) says it will relocate 16 Registration Area Centres (RAC’s) in three local government areas facing security challenges in Yobe State.

This was disclosed by the Head of Operations of the Commission, Goni Usman at a stakeholders’ meeting in Damaturu, on Tuesday.

Usman said the RAC’s and their collation centres in Geidam, Yunusari and Gujba local government areas would be moved to safe areas.

The commission would however shelve the plan should the security situation in the areas improve before the 2023 general elections.

Also speaking, the Head of ICT Department, 
Lamido Ibrahim revealed that a total of 93,912 old and new PVCs were collected by the Commission from 2019 to 2022.

He said 49,399 were distributed, while a balance of 44,513 remained unclaimed.

Ibrahim called on eligible voters who did not collect their PVC’s to do so immediately to exercise their franchise.

The state Commissioner of Police, Haruna Garba, reiterated a call to political parties to submit their campaign itinerary to police for provision of protection.

He said the police had been identifying flashpoints and trouble makers to dislodge them before the election.
