Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) in Nasarawa, Dr Uthman Ajidagba says the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) would conduct mock accreditation of voters in the State on Saturday, February 4th.
According to him, the mock accreditation of voters will be held in 12 polling units across six local government areas of the state.
He said the affected local government areas include Lafia, Awe, Nassarawa Eggon, Wamba, Karu and Nasarawa.
He said the exercise, which is part of preparations for the 2023 general elections, was to test-run the functionality of the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS).
He urged eligible voters in the respective polling units to turn out to participate in the mock accreditation and conduct themselves peacefully to achieve success.
Meanwhile, the commission has conducted training for security agencies in the state ahead of the general elections.
Dr. Ajidagba implored security agencies to adopt new strategies in line with unfolding trends across the country to ensure peaceful and hitch-free General Election.
He also enjoined them to see themselves as critical partners to enhance seamless execution of the electoral process for sustainable peace, good governance and the rule of law.
He pointed out that the success of the 2023 general elections depends largely on the roles of the security agencies hence the need for them to be committed and remained apolitical in discharging their duties throughout the exercise.
