Akin Alabi Urges INEC To Make Voter Registration A Continuous Exercise
Oloye Akin Alabi, the Nigerian Lawmaker Representing Egbeda/Ona-Ara Federal Constituency urges the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC to make the voters registration a continuous exercise and not for them to wait to the few months of Elections before opening the registration portal and registration venues for voters which in the past has been strenuous.
The Honorable shared this in a tweet earlier today with the picture of the letter he wrote to the house.
Moving a motion to urge INEC to truly make voter registration a truly continuous exercise. Waiting till a few months to the elections before registration of voters creates unnecessary chaos and disenfranchisement. Registration of voters for 2023 elections should commence now.
A move most Nigerians seem to like and commend his effort.
Nigerians have been Commenting on his post and this is what some of them have to say about it

Also move a motion for the passage of the Electoral Act again so that the president can sign.That will enable electronic transmission of election results. This will reduce rigging significantly
I have been saying this. It amounts to disenfranchising the masses when it is done in a hurry, people turn 18 every year, let the basic registrations for adults be automated and not something carried out every four years. INEC though independent, must be fully funded to run daily
