Distribution of permanent voter cards to hold from March 7 to 9.
The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, in Osun on Tuesday distributed copies of the voters register to all political parties in the state.
The Administrative Secretary of the commission, Oladipo Oladapo, said at a forum in Osogbo that the exercise was crucial to the success of the governorship and general elections.
“INEC is committed to providing a voters register that will be qualitative and error free to make it acceptable to all.
