    To this end, the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, believes the objectives of the display for claims and objections are being met with the identification of ineligible registrants by members of the public.

    INEC, in a statement signed by National Commissioner, Festus Okoye, noted that it cannot rule out infractions by its registration officials in allowing ineligible persons into the register in the first place, but promised that each confirmed case of infraction will be thoroughly investigated and culpable officials will be disciplined.
