Ahead of the 2019 general elections, the Independent National Electoral Commission says it has detected the names of 1224 dead persons in the voter register in Adamawa State.

The Resident Electoral Commissioner in the state, Kassim Gaidam, who said this at the commencement of a two-day workshop for Election Monitoring Implementers for the North East Zone, in Yola, the state capital, disclosed that the names were uncovered through the voter clean-up exercise in the state.

“The statistics of 1,224 dead persons, which we can confirm were on the register, were uncovered during the recent display of voter register for claims and objections,” he added.

The two-day zonal implementers training workshop organised by Election Monitoring and Support Centre, with the support of the European Centre for Electoral Support, was attended by INEC’s resident electoral commissioners for the six states in the North-East except that of Bauchi State, who sent a representative because of the bye-election he had to supervise.

INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, who was represented by Prof. Mohammed Kuna, said the training was to build the capacities of those manning its election monitoring support centres to ensure better coordination.

He added, “This workshop is second in the series organised by INEC in collaboration with the European Union across the six geopolitical zones.

Earlier, Mr. Samson Fadare, who represents the European Centre for Electoral Support, had said the EU was proud to be a part of the initiative being put in place towards ensuring free, fair and smooth elections in the country.
