As the June 30 dead line draws close, the crowd at INEC Centres across the Nation continues to surge, UmunnaTV was at Njikoka Local Government Area of Anambra State to monitor the situation.
At 6:30am the INEC centre was already filled with persons, young, old and special persons(persons with disability) some for fresh registration, collection, transfer and replacement as the case maybe.
The INEC Assistant EO Njikoka Local Government Area said the process has been hectic for the past few weeks and controlling the crowd of young people who are registering for the first time has been a herculean task.
The assistant EO also noted that those who are coming for replacement of lost card/transfer were advised to do so online via this link – https://vcr.inecnigeria.org/, to help reduce the crowd at the centre. The link which was pasted at the centre makes it easy for the individuals and commission towards containing and managing the surge at the centre.
Mrs. Ogechukwu Ebebe from Abba told our correspondence that the process was not as hectic as people were speculating. She said she came the first day and wrote her name but could not register and on the second day by 09:30am she was able to register in a very conducive and easy process. She pointed out that if the crowd can adhere to directives of the commission it will help in managing the crowd at the centre, as many as struggling to register and participate in the next year’s general elections due to high awareness and sensitization in town.
Miss Chinyerem Ezeanata from Abagana resident in Awka came to register for the first time said it took her three days to get registered pointing out that the special attention given to special people (old people, people with disability, VIPs, religious) made the process somehow cu it was a tough experience for her but her resilience saw her through.
