The long-awaited INEC Mock Accreditation Exercise has officially kicked off in Anambra state.
INEC officials, including the state Resident Electoral Commissioner, Dr Queen Agwu, were seen early on Saturday morning setting about in readiness for the exercise.
Dr Agwu’s first point of call was the PU 001 ,at Demonstration Primary school ward, Agu Awka.
At the Ward, some voters were being accredited as the BVAS was working optimally.
The Resident Electoral Commissioner also visited Amawbia 1,NYSC Pavilion, where it was discovered that only a few Voters had turned up for the accreditation as at 10:30AM.
There, also, a dramatic scene was to play out as the BVAS could neither identify the face nor read the thumbs of one male voter.
As it turned out, the man had been normal at the time he registered for his PVC; but thereafter, he was involved in an accident which ended up disfiguring his face and thumbs.
In a swift reaction to the incident, Dr Agwu promised to report the case to the Commission’s headquarters.
