As 2019 general elections get closer, the Independent National Electoral Commission INEC has rule-out the use of incident forms, insisting that the measures were aimed at correcting abuses in previous elections
The commission said its decision was based on its promise to deliver a credible and hitch-free election that will deepen the country’s democracy.
Rotimi Lawrence, the chief press secretary to INEC Chairman was quoted as saying that all eligible voters will be accredited by smart card readers (SCRs).
Some stakeholders have also expressed fear that with the President’s refusal to sign the amended electoral act, the election will be skewed in favour of the All Progressive Congress (APC).
Rotimi added that INEC will no longer use incident forms during the polls, stressing that the SCRs will accredit all Nigerians for the elections.
