2019: Strategies in place for free, fair election in Delta – INEC

2019: 22,643 candidates contesting 1,504 positions – INEC

The Independent National Electoral Commission in Delta says it has put strategies in place to conduct free and fair election come 2019.

The state Administrative Secretary, Mrs RoseOriaran-Anthony, made the assertion in Agbor, Delta on Wednesday while monitoring the displayed voters register.

Oriaran-Anthony said that monitoring of the voters register was one of the strategies that had been put in place to ensure a free and fair election.

She said that at the end of the display by Nov. 12, the commission expected to have a clean register.

The secretary said that the purpose of monitoring the display of the voters register was to ensure that people were actually coming out to check for data capturing error and for claims and objections.

She said that the turnout was impressive but the commission expected a more robust turnout as time goes on.

Oriaran-Anthony advised the electorate to check for any name that was not on the register as well as dead persons, underage persons and non-Nigerians.
