The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has announced voting time, procedure and requirements ahead of the forthcoming general elections.
VANTAGE NEWS reports that the electoral body stated that the authentication with the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) would be through fingerprint or facials.
The electoral umpire while announcing the development via its verified Twitter handle on Sunday, stated that voting would begin at 8:30 am, with voters presenting their Permanent Voter Cards, PVCs, for accreditation using BVAS.
INEC further revealed that voters would be allowed to leave or stay 300 meters away to witness the sorting and counting of votes.
Recall that the Chairman of the commission, Mahmood Yakubu had while inspecting ongoing training for Supervisory Presiding Officers on Saturday, noted that all ad-hoc staff engaged to assist the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in the conduct of the forthcoming general election would be swearing an oath of neutrality before the polls.
Yakubu said ad-hoc staff owed no political party or candidate any allegiance, rather the citizens, therefore they need to be neutral.
