According to Wednesday report, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has removed 749 polling units from inappropriate facilities.

INEC removed nine polling units from shrines and several others from religious houses, royal palaces, and private properties.

Professor Mahmood Yakubu, INEC Chairman, made this known on Wednesday in Abuja at a meeting with Resident Electoral Commissioners (RECs).

Mahmood Yakubu, however, did not give reasons for the new development.

After the amendment, Nigeria now has 176, 846 full-fledged polling units from the initial 119, 973 polling units.

This is as a result of the recent conversion of existing voting points to units by the commission.
