Good news to all Nigerians who have been finding it difficult to get their permanent voters cards ahead of the February General Elections. The Nigerian Federal House of Representatives have approved the use of temporary voters’ card in the elections.
The motion was presented by Hon. Femi Gbajabimila representing Surulere Federal Constituency. He said “Today on the floor of House of Representatives, I presented a motion to enable Nigerians use Temporary Voters’ Card during 2015 elections. Data of such persons must be verifiable on the voters register at the polling centre on day of election.”
“The motion would ensure registered and eligible voters will not be disenfranchised in the 2015 general elections. My colleagues supported the motion to use Temporary Voters Cards on day of election and it therefore scaled through.”
As at the time of publishing this, there has not been a statement from the Nigerian Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
