The Resident Electoral Commissioner in the state, Kassim Gaidam who spoke on behalf of the electoral commission at the event, disclosed that the names were uncovered through the voter clean-up exercise in the state.

“The statistics of 1,224 dead persons, which we can confirm were on the register, were uncovered during the recent display of voter register for claims and objections,” he added.

This is coming after INEC disclosed that 1,504,858 people had collected their permanent voter cards in Enugu State. The Resident Electoral Commissioner in the state, Dr. Emeka Ononamadu, who disclosed this while addressing members of the Civil Society Organisations and Inter-Party Advisory Council in a meeting in Enugu, expressed concern about the spate of violence in the primaries organised by political parties.

Ononamadu described the violence as worrisome, adding that such a situation was new to the history of primary elections in the state. He, however, expressed optimism that such ugly incidents would not be witnessed in the next general elections, adding that citizens should work to put a stop to electoral violence.

He disclosed that the total number of registered voters in the state was 1,958,547. He further noted that out of the fresh registration of 14,551,482 voters in the country, the state registered 549,326.

  1. Inec need to check other states voters list so that we can have credible voters in the upcoming election.

  2. Do you mean that they died after they have registered or that some people registered them when they were already dead? I don’t get cos you people can really do and undo.

  3. Once I saw the headline of this news I knew it must be in the Northern part of Nigeria, some months ago three voters cards were found with three different names but one person’s picture. This is very very bad!!! They should put a stop to all these nonsense cos it’s really affecting this country.

  4. That’s how they are going to rig the 2019 election,a 10 age child will be given a voter card. Election in this country is another way round

  5. Whose fault is it? of course nobody why because people die everyday.
    Maybe they registered and didn’t come for the PVC voters card.

  6. Good work also look into those done in kastina and Kaduna, kano dont limit your discovery in only Adamawa

  7. That is good to hear ,this would not have started now is something that must have been happening before now ,but they should investigate if they are truly dead or is our politician work

  8. It’s really good this was detected earlier, it really shows INEC officers are doing their job effectively

  9. What a nation! Congrats to INEC for this recovery that is if it wasn’t an agreement maybe the other side didn’t keep to their word.

  10. Its more like a scam, its possible they have been killed n made us of there voters card to vote for anybody of their choice

  11. Did they die after registration or before.. That’s what we should be looking at.but any way am not surprised in this our country of today anything can happen… It’s good u people uncovered it early sha…so at least u know what to do about it….

  12. They want ppl to vote meanwhile they r loosing their precious lives while going to collect PVC and at the day of the election it won’t b a free n fair one

  13. They want ppl to vote meanwhile they r loosing their precious lives while going to collect PVC and at the day of the election it won’t b a free n fair one n now these lives have been wasted

  14. We’re they expecting their spirits to come and vote. They keep killing those that go out for them, who then will vote for them when they kill all of them?

  15. I think the same exercise should be carried out in each state to discover more of this. God bless Nigeria

  16. Election is never free and fair.. So I will never believe that PVC is important because it can be manipulated.

  17. This is serious… So, even ghosts now resurrect to register for voters card. All in a bit to rid election

  18. Nigeria has always been known for crime during elections coming either from masses or the candidates for election. Great job from the inec team for revealing this truth.

  19. Would there ever be anything called free and fair election in Nigeria? The good thing is at least this has been discovered, i hope they check out other states as well.

  20. This is a direct opposite of a free and fair election process. Thank God it was noticed before it could be late.

  21. Imagine person children, when Will corruption stop in Nigeria? Is only God that will help us on this coming election who know what will happen next, they should put a stop to this rubbish because is really affecting us, people are dieing for people to enjoy what nonsense

  22. Lol. This country amuses me sometimes. What’s all this? Seriously we are way past this childish display that goes on all the time

  23. Do you mean that they died after they have registered or that some people registered them when they were already dead? I don’t get cos you people can really do and undo

  24. Na today….e don tey…..
    That is what you see and get in a corrupt nation like ours…And they will end up saying Nija no dey carry last

  25. wonders shall never end in naija,its no longer ghost workers,but now ghost voters.it is well with Nigeria IJN AMEN and AMEN

  26. Nigeria! This is really embassing, isn’t there a way to even make sure their voters cards are awarded to the right person?

  27. Comment* this is very bad of them if a dead person can do election is very bad that is why i need God’s intervention

  28. Is it that a corrupt act took place or what. Cos I don’t really know why they would register dead people

  29. When is country going go for free and fair election, getting a voter’s card for a dead person wouldn’t led this country anywhere rather we remain in hardship.

  30. Lol the dead votes. Since the living doesn’t like voting let them select our leaders for us. Clown country

  31. Hahab the dead votes. Well Since the living doesn’t like voting let them select our leaders for us. Clown country

  32. This is totally, one chance,well I no blame anybody but our government, because our citizens don’t have data

  33. Is normal in nigeria now, they may not call it anything, is a common thing they should search well, they should go around the northerns, because this is how they rig the election.

  34. This is a big rubbish,,, who I a kid?? Thanks to our government, Una dey try very wellooo and for INEC you guys are excellent in all you do, continue

  35. Today this inec people are doing their job tomorrow it’s a different thing entirely so because you guys discovered this we should not hear word. it’s only when they’ll be free and fair election that’s when you guys will be applauded

  36. Lots of people have died from suffering and other reasons, even after they have done their voters card and have not collected them.

  37. Kudos to INEC on this discovery, if not their cards would have been used to vast votes by corrupted ppersonals

  38. That’s why it’s good to keep records, kudos to Independent National Electoral Commission for the good job done

  39. Is only in that state alone? it’s everywhere in the country so let INEC expand their search to other part of the country
