Govt. Accuses APC Of Disrupting Voter Registration Violence.

Edo State Government has accused the All Progressives Congress of disrupting the ongoing Continuous Voter Registration exercise in the state.

Before the commencement of the registration, the acting state chairman of the APC, Jarret Tenebe, in a statement urged the Independent National Electoral Commission to cancel the exercise due to the damage to its state headquarters, materials and equipment after a downpour at the weekend.

Not deterred by the development, INEC, in a statement by its National Commissioner and Chairman of the Information and Voter Education Committee, Sam Olumekun said,  the relocation of the exercise to its secretariat at Ikpoba-Okha Local Government Area of the state, while, the APC alleged that the Peoples Democratic Party and INEC were conniving to manipulate the CVR in favour of PDP.

Head of Voters Education and Publicity of INEC, TimidiWariowei, described it as unfair while, the Edo State Government, in a press statement by the Commissioner for Communication and Orientation, Chris Nehikhare, condemned the alleged action of the APC.

The Government, therefore, urged the people of the state not to be discouraged by the desperate antics of the APC and its agents but to leverage the opportunity of the CVR exercise to register for their Permanent Voter Cards and participate in the September 21 gubernatorial election to ensure a free, fair, and violence-free electoral process.
