Peter Obi Cries Out on INEC’S Sluggish Registration Of Prospective Voters, Particularly In the South East Region of the Country


The labour party presidential aspirant, Mr. Peter Obi who dumped the Dollarised Peoples Democratic Party PDP on the eve of their presidential Primaries having foreseen that there is no room left for patriotism, honour, integrity, and concern for the welfare of the people in the party. He lamented how money wins it all in the opposition party.

Sequel to the above, Obi made one of his famous statements, that it is more honourable for him to fail doing the right thing than for him to succeed doing the wrong thing. He said that the process of the journey is as important as the journey itself.

This afternoon, the labour party flagbearer who has taken the party from relegation to third position within one week of his emergence as the presidential aspirant of the party. His organic followers accross the country who are frustrated with the status quo have vowed to cause revolution through the ballot. But most of them are realising how many Youths are without PVC.

There have been series of complaints on how INEC officials have been overwhelmed in meeting prospective voters registration as demanded by the electorates who have come of age after the last continuous voters registration exercise. Most have complained that voters registration is a continous thing in our laws that will normally end three months before the election day.

They have been pockets of protests among prospective voters who gather daily at various INEC registration centre nationwide, only to go home without been registered or captured for those who registered online before INEC abruptly shut their online registration. This delay in registration of prospective voters have been more pronounced in the south East Region, as most people who went for registration in Anambra, Enugu, Imo, and some part of South South Region are yet to access the services.

Then Peter Obi took to his official Twitter handle @PeterObi to register the information about voters registration accross Nigeria, most so in the south East Region that he described as been dogged by inertia and bureaucratic bottlenecks. See his tweet below;

Thus, joining his voice to those calling on the INEC to do all within the confines of law to ensure that they register eligible prospective voters. Therefore, we are calling on INEC through this medium to do all within its power to ensure effective and efficient disposal of this responsibility.
