INEC had undertaken the task to expand existing Polling Units across the country to boost voters’ access to polling centres so that apathy will reduce during elections, The Nation reports.

According to Yakubu, the Commission accomplished the task for the first time in 25 years.

He said, “We earlier assured Nigerians that we shall conclude work on the expansion of voter access to polling units and make the new polling units available to citizens ahead of the CVR exercise.
