Some of the eligible voters who spoke to Galaxy TV said that the process was slow because of the attitude of the workers who have turned the registration into a money-making exercise.

Dr Nwachukwu Orji, the Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), told newsmen that the process has been ongoing for 16 months and that every eligible voter ought to have taken advantage of the time frame.
