The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) says it has detected and removed the names of 1,931 dead persons from the voters’ register in Kaduna State, ahead of the 2019 elections. 

The Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) in the state, Abdurahim Kasugama, said this on Tuesday when he received the Senate Committee on INEC in his office.

He said the names were uncovered during the recent display of voter register for claims and objections.

He also announced that there were no claims of names of foreigners in the voters’ register, except for few cases of irregular images that were discovered and removed.

 “Our recently concluded program has been very successful. During the display, we got claims and objections. To the best of what has come from the 23 local government, there’s been no claim of any non-Nigerian from Kaduna State.

“Those who died during the exercise were claimed to be 1,931 names which were removed. We also identified 12 people with still pictures. These are people who instead of their images put images of objects,” he said.

Corrections were also made in the names and ages of people who lodged complaints concerning their registration
