INEC move out polling units from shrines, churches, mosques
Polling units located at inappropriate places, numbering 749 have finally been removed by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
The commission removed nine polling units from shrines and several others from religious houses, royal palaces, and private properties.
Professor Mahmood Yakubu, INEC Chairman, made this known on Wednesday in Abuja at a meeting with Resident Electoral Commissioners (RECs).
Yakubu, however, did not give reasons for the action.
Presently, Nigeria has 176, 846 full-fledged polling units from the initial 119, 973 polling units.
This is as a result of the recent conversion of existing voting points to units by the commission.
