The Independent Electoral Commission INEC, has set up a 9-man committee to investigate the alleged registration of underage persons in Kano.
The Chairman of the commission, Mamood Yakubu made this known in Abuja while receiving the Forum of State Electoral Commissions of Nigeria.
He mandated the committee, headed by the commission’s National Commissioner, Abubakar Nahuche, to submit its report within two weeks.
The INEC boss charged the committee to ascertain if the voter register requested for by the Kano State Independent Electoral Commission was actually used in the Local Government Elections.
He said committee should also engage stakeholders on issues related to the voter register and make other recommendations relevant to the assignment.
Yakubu said INEC would continue to collaborate with its counterparts in the states to ensure that local government elections meet the required standards.
