Plateau INEC Constitutes Committee To Allocate New Poling Units


From Agabus Pwanagba, Jos

In its efforts to ensure that the 1, 542 polling units just allocated to Plateau State, by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), the state’s electoral empire has constituted a committee, to ensure equity, justice and fairness in the subsequent distribution and allocation of the voting points.

The members of the committee who were drawn from the state’s three Senatorial zones are expected to recommend new allocations, relocate the existing, naming/renaming of polling units.

The  State’s Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), Mr. Habu Zarma, stated this Thursday in Jos, the state capital at a Strategic Stakeholders Forum.

According to him, “They are also to verify all requests, collate all genuine complaints and recommend appropriate actions.

Zarma maintained that the state INEC “is in the process of relocating all polling units not in public buildings”.  He clarified that the units were those located in Palaces, private residences and places of worship.

In the same vein, polling units without the required minimum voters’ population he stressed may be relocated to places of need.

Plateua State initially had 2, 631 polling units, leaving the current figure at 4, 173 – with the newly allocated units.
