It is going to three weeks now that this national exercise has commenced. The exercise has been faced with various hick-pus ranging from none acceptance of finger prints to lack of stationery is some centres. It was even alleged that some officials are monetizing it due to lack of adequate Direct Data Capture (DDC) machine to go round.
Report also have it that about one thousand plus machine were adjudged bad in about fourteen states of the federation. Many Nigerians are sleeping at the centre while some will go to the centre as early as 0300am. The irony of the matter is many of them will end up not registering. It is pathetic you say!
The extension is rapidly going to an end and many Nigerians are not sure of registering because the number given to them and the rate of registration at city centres, where there is dense population.
I am short of opinion please, help me suggest to INEC the way to go about this, so that Nigerians will always exercise their rights without stress or hardship.
We are waiting to see how many Nigerians will be registered for the 2011 April polls and what INEC will do for those that might not make it, not due to lack of will but the bottlenecks created by INEC.
