The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has said it expunged 299 names of foreigners pretending to be Nigerians from the voter register.

The chairman of the commission, Prof Mahmood Yakubu, who said this yesterday in Abuja at a consultative meeting of the commission with security agencies, said the impostors were discovered through information made available by the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS).

“We have agreed with the NIS that they will deploy their personnel to the registration centres nationwide to ensure that only Nigerians register to vote in our election. We shall continue to work in partnership to ensure that our voter register is purged of ineligible registrants as enshrined in the Electoral Act,” Yakubu said.

He promised that the commission would continue to work in partnership with all security agencies to purge the voter register of all ineligible voters. (Daily Trust)
