Elections stakeholders would meet over inadequacy of polling units as well as address the challenges they pose to election management.
INEC National Commissioner and Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee, Festus Okoye, revealed this in a statement after a meeting of its senior management staff in Abuja on Tuesday.
He said there would be a meeting of stakeholders on the issue.
He said several meetings have been held for several weeks where a number of issues were deliberated including the finalised arrangements for the upcoming engagements with stakeholders on expanding voter access to polling units in Nigeria.
Okoye listed overcrowding, numerous unserved populations and poor locations as some of the challenges that needed to be addressed, saying they are potentially disenfranchising millions of Nigerians, and also pose health risks in the context of the COVID – 19 pandemic.
This is a national problem that calls for national consensus.”
