INEC, the Independent National Electoral Commission, yesterday, announced it had registered 68.8 million voters in the country for this month’s general elections.
According to Dazang, he reported that although the commission earlier had challenges in the production of the cards, INEC was able to overcome the challenges.
He said the commission had produced cards for those whose data were lost and those recently captured during its Continuous Voter Registration (CVR).
“At a point in time, the contractor producing the cards had machine failure, but after sometimes, he overcame the problem and was able to boost level of production from 350,000 to 600,000 per day.
“The one we sublet was able to produce 1.4 million daily and that explained why we keep telling people that we have confidence that we will produce the card and every one will get it.
“Now, as we speak, the cards for those whose bio-data were captured during the Continuous Voters Registration are available for collection.”
He said the cards had been distributed to respective states for collection and owners could collect theirs at the distribution centers.”
Dazang also said that no fewer than 65 per cent of the cards had been collected nationwide as at yesterday morning.
“As at last week when we had a meeting with our Public Affairs Officers in Abuja, the commission had distributed 63 per cent of the cards.”
He assured that those who registered would collect their cards before February 14.
