Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC)

Ajidagba made this known on Thursday in Lafia while interacting with newsmen on assumption of office as the new REC in charge of the state.

He said that 1,148,740 eligible voters had registered in the state since the last election in 2015, adding that the state had fared better than other states in the country in terms of collection of PVCs.

“It is quite commendable that out of the 1,148,740 persons who registered since 2015 in the state, only 102,556 were yet to collect their processed PVCs.”

He said that more efforts were needed to ensure that all unclaimed PVCs were collected and sought the collaboration of the media in this regard.

The commissioner appealed to the media for sustained partnership in order to deliver free, fair and credible elections to Nigerians in 2019.
