Southern Nigeria Peoples Assembly Communique
The Southern Nigeria Peoples Assembly meeting which started Tuesday evening and lasted till early hours of Wednesday specifically deliberated on the INEC’s decision to create additional polling unit across the country.
One other fundamental reason they gave for the call to conduct the next general election on the existing 120, 000 polling units instead of the proposed 150, 000 polling units was that the process of creation were not based on any known data.
The group also expressed fears that there is no justification for additional polling units since the recent Automated Fingers Identification Systems, AFIS, shows a reduction of registered voters from 73 million to 57 million.
The assembly has Chief Edwin Clark as its coordinating Chairman with former Vice President Alex Ekwueme as the Co-Chair, and Senator Femi Okonrounmu a leader from the South-West delegation.
