EC to supply Supreme Court with list of NHIS registered voters

The Electoral Commission (EC) has rejected claims it will not be able to provide the Supreme Court with a list of NHIS registered voters which the court has demanded.

The court last week ordered the EC to present the list by June 29.

Some media reports suggested, following the ruling, that the commission had misplaced the record of the NHIS registered voters.

In a response on its Facebook page on Saturday, however, the commission denied the reports and stressed that it would comply with the demand of the court.

“It is a complete deception for anyone to claim that the EC cannot compile a credible list of voters who registered using the NHIS card as a form of identification. It is also false for anyone to claim that the EC cannot comply with the orders of the Supreme Court.

Where lies the difficulty or impossibility when the EC has the primary registration document (Form 1As). The Commission will fully satisfy the request of the Apex Court," the commission said.
