INEC creates 30,000 additional polling units

Share This

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) yesterday said it has created an additional 30,000 polling units across Nigeria, bringing the nation-wide total to 150,000 units.

The commission said the decision is meant to fulfill its pledge to decongest polling units across Nigeria in order to make it easier for voters to cast their votes.   In a statement released Tuesday and signed by a director, Ishiaku A. Gali, INEC disclosed that the decision to create the additional polling units was taken at the commission’s meeting last Tuesday.   With the creation of the additional polling units, Lagos now has 11,023 new units, while Kano with an initial 10,127 polling units, comes a close second to Lagos with 9,809 new units.
