The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Kuje Area Council, FCT, has decried the inadequate number of capturing machines in the ongoing Continuous Voters Registration (CVR) in the area.

In an interview on Wednesday, Yakubu Allawa, the Kuje INEC electoral officer, said the office has only four functional machines for the entire area.

Mr Allawa said another major challenge the commission faced was poor networks, which had slowed the process during capturing.

According to him, decentralisation of the registration centre helped speed up the registration exercise and decongested the office population.

However, the electoral officer called on all major stakeholders, especially the traditional rulers and political party stewards, to collaborate and synergies to make the registration exercise easy.

He said the commission was ready to make the exercise seamless if stakeholders would cooperate and assist in organising registrants at their various units for easy registration.

Before the decentralisation of the registration, some registrants described the exercise as tedious and cumbersome, marred by delay in capturing, slow process and other technical hitches.

They, therefore, appealed for the deployment of more machines to different electoral wards in Kuje to ease their registration before the deadline.
