Kogi state office of Nigeria's independent national electoral Commission says about two hundred and forty five thousand new persons have been registered as prospective voters in the state as at this June.
The Resident Electoral Commissioner in the state, Professor James Apam, stated this at a media briefing in Lokoja, capital of Kogi state central Nigeria.
Professor Apam expressed disappointment that out of over one hundred and twelve thousand permanent voters cards printed for kogi state this june, only about seven thousand voters cards have so far been collected in the state.
The electoral Commissioner who spoke of the efforts by the commission to enfranchise all eligible voters in kogi state in line with the mandate of the commission, advised people of Kogi state who applied for voters cards to go to the electoral commission offices in local government areas for the collection of their cards, while those who applied for replacement and inter-state transfer of voters cards will soon be issued their voters cards.
