My husband died five years ago but, I saw his face on INEC's register yesterday- Widow says

According to a news that was published by The Nation Newspaper Online this evening, it was reported that a widow, whose name was given as Mrs Beatrice Chukwuma, has narrated how the presidential and National Assembly elections that were held yesterday, brought back the sad memory of her deceased husband who died about five years ago.

Information that was given made it known that, Beatrice, said she almost fainted when checking for her name at her polling unit, but, only to see the name and picture of her late husband in INEC's register.

It was reported that the widow, who voted around 9.30 am at the Government Secondary School, Zone 4, said although she had relocated to Kubwa satellite Town in Abuja, after her husband’s death, but, she had to return to Wuse Zone 4 to vote because she was unable to transfer to another polling unit, as the unit used to be where herself and her late husband usually vote before her husband died.

She said, “My husband died five years ago but, I saw his face on INEC's register today (yesterday). It has not been easy for me. Our polling unit has always been here at the Government Secondary School Tudun Wada. I thought that I had already got over my husband’s death until I saw his picture again now."

Further talking, she said she did not know that it was possible to notify INEC of his death in order for them to remove his details from their database.
