The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has debunked the rumours of under age voting in the North especially Kano State. The fact-finding team has revealed that there is no evidence to back it up.
The Chairman of the panel, Abubakar Nahuce, told Press on Friday that from his group’s connection with common society associations and media, no proof of underage voting has developed.
INEC set up the board following open objection that welcomed recordings and photographs of underage voting accepted to have been shot amid the Kano decision.
“From all what we have seen and talked about with you media men, none of you has seen any underage voter in the line or voting,” Mr. Nahuce said on Friday.
The group has so far met with the director of the Kano Sate Independent Electoral Commission (KANSIEC), the media and other important bodies.
