He said the electoral body had in many ways intervened to ensure all intending voters are captured.
He stated that the commission had in the last few weeks, extended registration centers to both churches and other places to mitigate the surging crowd.
He said, “Few weeks we isolated places to carry out intervention; we took machines to markets, churches, NUJ, NYSC orientation camp and other places due to large concentration.
“This helped to mitigate the surging crowd. For complaints over performance of our staff, we developed a compliant desk for people to voice out their complaints”.
