Ogun REC Decries Low Turnout For CVR

Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, in Ogun State has decried the low turnout of eligible voters in the voter registration in Ogun State compared to other state in the South West.

The new Resident Electoral Commissioner, REC, in Ogun state, Mr. Olusegun Agbaje who made this known at a news briefing in Abeokuta, noted that Ogun State ranked last among the South West states by the population.

Mr. Agbaje called on all eligible voters in Ogun State to seize the opportunity provided by the Continuous Voters Registration, CVR, to register as voters to empower them exercise their franchise in the 2023 general elections.

He called on all other stakeholders to step up their ongoing efforts at sensitising the people on the importance of the exercise.

Mr. Agbaje however cautioned violators of the law guiding the exercise, especially those engaging in multiple registration warning that they would be identified and prosecuted accordingly.
