INEC

Also, Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has dismissed allegation that some women wearing hijab or purdah were denied registration in the ongoing voter registration in Oyo State.

The State INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner, Mutiu Agboke, asked members of the public to disregard the allegation.

Agboke expressing concern over the allegation explained that the voter registration in the state has no religious or political coloration.

He asked those behind the allegation to stop peddling rumour, while asking anyone in the state with a genuine complain over the conduct of the voter registration to report to INEC office.

The ongoing voter registration in the state, according to Agboke, is simply an electoral activity aims at ensuring that Nigerians of voting age, are registered for the forthcoming polls.

The resident electoral commissioner further reiterated the commitment of INEC to continuously and positively engage religious bodies, political parties and other stakeholders in all the electoral activities leading up to the 2019 polls.
