INEC bemoans low numbers of voters in Bayelsa

- Advertisment -

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) for Bayelsa, Baritor Kpagih, has decried the poor turnout of residents for the ongoing Continuous Voters’ Registration (CVR).

Kpagih told journalists today in Yenagoa, that the exercise that commenced on Wednesday would end on Monday, adding that the turnout was low.

He said that political parties and stakeholders were not doing enough to mobilise people to participate in the exercise, which was facing some challenges.

According to him, the challenges are due to the riverine nature of most parts of the state that are accessible only through the creeks.

The REC said that INEC in Bayelsa had decentralised the CVR from the eight local government offices of the commission to the 24 state constituency levels.

He said that the exercise was to ensure that eligible voters were not disenfranchised, ahead of the December Five governorship election.

The INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner , warned that anyone, who might attempt multiple registration, would be fished out.
