    This must be a joke! I have been going to the polling centre since Monday without seeing any INEC agent. They only pasted the valid registration list on the wall. How do you collect your permanent card if INEC officials don’t come? I pasted the pics of the situation here at newsheadlinesfromnigeria.blogspot.co.uk. They’ll need to extend the distribution till like the end of this month if they’re truly serious about the success of the whole exercise.
