INEC created additional 1,607 polling units in Oyo – REC 




THE Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has created an additional 1,607 polling units in Oyo State.

INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) in Oyo State, Mutiu Agboke, disclosed this on Tuesday at a valedictory session held in his honour in Ibadan, the state capital.

Adegoke, who will conclude his five-year term as Oyo REC on Wednesday, explained that the additional polling units were created to allow more eligible voters exercise their franchise during the forthcoming 2023 general elections.

“The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) started the preparation for the 2023 general elections immediately after the conclusion of the 2019 general elections.

“Thereafter, the commission converted additional 1,607 polling units to the initial 4,783 polling units making a total of 6,390 polling units in the state,” he said.

The outgoing REC further urged the media to inform residents of the state about the new polling units.

“I appeal to the media to assist the electorate on the need to populate or migrate to these newly converted polling units before the conduct of the general elections in the state,” he said.
