He further revealed that as of July 25, 2022, 276,767 registrants in Anambra State had finished the registration procedure.

Okoye applauded Anambra State stakeholders for helping the commission during the exercise.

“We sent 110 INEC development gadgets to Anambra in total. 10 was broken. Our in-house engineers fixed 6 of them, then re-deployed them to the fields.

As you are aware, the exercise had to be slowed down for security reasons in several areas of the South East. And we put in place counter measures to strengthen it,” he said.

We trained some of our personnel in Anambra State to help with the exercise. We isolated individuals for transfer, replacement, and other actions by training certain of our staff.

Our personnel has received training to assist in providing the various services. We gleaned a detailed process for doing voter transfers.


“We segregated areas to carry out intervention for a few weeks; due to high concentration, we brought equipment to markets, churches, NUJ, NYSC orientation camp, and other locations. This reduced the impact of the growing crowd.
