    INEC Vows to Prosecute 93 000 Multiple Voters Registrants in Anambra

    The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has vowed to prosecute over 93,000 people in Anambra state involved in multiple voters registration ahead of the state governorship election.

    The chairman of the commission, Professor Attahiru Jega told a news conference in Abuja that the prosecution of those found to have done multiple registrations would serve as a deterrent to other people with the same motives in other states.

    While reacting to the ruling by a federal high court in Abuja which voided the deregistration of 28 political parties, Professor Jega assured that the battle is not over, that the court cannot overturn the deregistration decision and plans are in the pipeleine  to appeal the court judgment which overturned it’s deregistration of some political parties in the country.

    And to check electoral fraud, the INEC chairman said the introduction of the permanent voter cards before the end of the year is one strategy that the INEC is deploying to further checkmate electoral fraud in the system ahead of the 2015 elections.
