Voter registration yet to commence in Adamawa council


The on-going nationwide Continuous Voter Registration exercise is yet to commence in Madagali Local Government Area of Adamawa due to security concerns, an official said on Wednesday.

Mr Salihu Yau, the state Administrative Secretary, Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC], said the commission had not received security clearance to go into the area.

Yau told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Yola that INEC officials, traditional rulers and security officials were meeting in Gulak, headquaters of the local government on the way forward.

The official, however, said that with the exception of Madagali, the exercise was going on smoothly in the remaining 20 local government areas of the state.

He explained that so far, over 1000 people had registered across the state since commencement of the exercise four days ago.

Yau expressed confidence that more eligible voters would turn up to be registered as the exercise continue.
