INEC set for today’s elections with 72m voters

The Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, yesterday reiterated the commission’s readiness to hold the presidential and National Assembly elections throughout the country today.

Yakubu said 72,775,502 registered voters had collected their Permanent Voters’ Card (PVCs) and are thus eligible to cast their votes while those without PVCs would not vote.

“Tomorrow (today) is Election Day. A total of 72,775,502 citizens who have collected their PVCs are eligible to cast their ballots. Nigerians will elect a president out of a total of 73 candidates nominated by their political parties.

He warned those who don’t have anything to do, either to vote or be involved in election duties, to stay off poling centres and the streets.
