ONITSHA South Local Government Area (LGA) is included in the ongoing display of voters’ register by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Anambra State.

The exercise, which commenced in all 326 wards in the state for `Claims and Objections’, started since November 6 to November 12.

An INEC official at Lafiaji, Fegge Ward 2, Mrs. Charity Onwukwe said the purpose of the exercise was to ensure that there was total clean up of voters’ cards, so as to get the actual number of voters for the election.

Mrs. Onwukwe said the removal of deceased persons registered, non-Nigerians with still pictures and under aged persons would be affected officially on November 11 at local government areas.

She enjoined persons registered from 2010 to date to take advantage of this opportunity to collect their PVCs, stressing that collection would revert back to local government offices of the commission.

“I urge the general public to go for their Claims and Objection Centres to check the following: whether their names are on the register, incorrectly spelt or omitted.

“In case any is dictated, the person will be given a form to fill to ensure corrections,” she said
Mrs. Ebirim Doris, an INEC Official at Fegge ward 1, St Michel’s Parish, said there was very low turnout of people in spite of several announcements by the parish priest.

“The `I don’t care attitude’ of our people is too bad, especially at this time that we are looking forward to electing our new leaders,” she said.

Mr. Obinna Ibe and Mr Ikechukwu Ezike who were present at the centre to collect their PVCs said the exercise was okay, saying that they had been relieved of the stress of going to the LGA.
