Lagos just concluded Elections for Local Government positions over the weekend, it’s on-going in other states across the nation as Bayelsa just amounted 69,000 eligible voters, quite a proud number to be announced by the INEC Admin Secretary of Bayelsa, Clement Oha.

He told newsmen in Yenogoa that the Electoral Commission had also handled 1,057 cases of transferred registration in Bayelsa on July 20.

Mr Clement Oha’s words:

“In Southern-Ijaw, being the largest local government area in the state, we recorded the highest registration of 14, 110 eligible voters, with the least number of 2,724 recorded in Brass.

“The first phase of the exercise was smooth and successful in the 8 local government areas of the state’

Plus the one major problem always facing INEC during registrations was overcame, the problem of logistics and efficient equipment.

People in the Riverine areas of Bayelsa found it easy to register as there were little or no challenges of poor or mismanaged hands and equipment.

MR Clement Oha went on to say:

We know the terrain already; at the flag-off of the exercise in April, we started with nine registration centres, but at the later stage, we got additional 10 centres, making it 19.

“Preparation has started for the commencement of the second phase on July 31 and as I am talking to you, some of our staff are in the ICT centre for consolidation,’’ Oha said.

Voting is part of our obligations as citizens of this green land, Nigeria and the INEC Chairman advised and appealed that we go out and register so Elections can have eligible voters making the decisions of who rules and who doesn’t.

Cheers!
